Great shot. You've caught the surfer and the waves in the background beautifully. However, I think it would have been even better if the front had been in focus too!

I like it, a great surfing pic which shows that you don't have to get in tight to make it look good. I think that the background add to the impact of the photo.

Thanks All! I had fun watching these surfer kids falling of their surfboards into the water and getting back in many more times. They seemed to be really enjoying it. Meanwhile, the surf sprays and waves kept happening in the background and around them. Hence, the scene.

Nice how you caught the air between the surfer's board and the wave!

Thanks! Yes, after some anticipation, and shooting a couple or three frames when I thought that it was going to happen. At that time too, I was trying to maintain a sense of peripheral vision to maintain the composition so as not to loose the nice elements surrounding the subjects.
