Thank you all for the gracious comments and compliments. I wouldn't even get shots like this if it wasn't for the gifted surfers dancing in front of my lens. I'm told but, haven't seen yet, one of the images in this sequence made the cover of Heavy Water Magazine here in Hawaii this month. Thank you all again
