Your surfing pics are very, very good. A few more with face shots would be good but the action on the wave itself would not be as good. In this case, shooting the backside of a surfer is definitely acceptable if not, preferred by me when viewing such shots as surfing.

I have a cousin (Kaipo Jaquias) now retired pro had many shots taken and my favorite has always been the layback slides and slashes.

Love to see more.

Mahalo,

Tom

Thanks Tom,

A lot of the pics were taken from the Sebastian Jetty and almost ALL the waves were rights so I couldn't get a lot of face shots or surfers "coming towards me".



I've definitely heard of and seen your cousin the mags.

Kaipo rips!!
