Surfer Dude

When I heard about the “high surf warning” last week, I got into my car on Saturday to catch some windsurfers – so I thought. When I got to the beach, no surfers, low tide…..I should have checked the tide tables before I drove all the way to the coast.
Learning from this I got up early the next day (Sunday) to get to the coast by the time high tide hit. I found a lot of surfers in the water enjoying the waves. Not very high waves I must say. Not one windsurfer or kite boarder around. Still I took over 500 images using a 100-400mm lens with a 1.4 extender, giving me a total of 560mm focal length. It is fun looking through the images to see what I actually got, because whenever the surfers caught a wave I kept on clicking away until they scrubbed.
The image below is a tight crop, the surfer almost jumped out of my frame, so no cropping on the top.
