Excellent. Yes, surfers are a fearless lot and have a sense of entitlement to each and every wave.

Thanks for the comments. Yes Hards, crazy. Many years ago when I surfed this area, we would wave off the helicopter warning us about shark sightings - photography is safer.

Great timing! Did the ship catch the next wave?

Actually the ship is in the entrance channel immediately next to the surf break and the two were not as close as it appears. The angle that I took the image makes it deceiving. The wave dies in the deeper water of the channel - if the surfer rode the wave to the end, he would be at the edge of the channel.
