Great action! How do you position yourself to get these? A few appear to be taken from above the surfer.

Great shots. It was cool to see the variety of riding styles people were using, and the variety of people as well.

Thanks Narcis and runlike!!

On the "elevated" look: Several of the shots were taken from the Cocoa Beach pier. It extends well out into the ocean, makes a great platform for surfing shots!

The challenge to post and comment still wanes here. I like any and all surfing shots you have posted. I will say one shot out of the bunch is a bit out of focus that you posted of a young boy with his mouth wide open looking like he is enjoying one of the best rides of the day. The line-up shots are not nearly as good as the tight action shots.

More posts with fewer pictures would help for those wanting to comment IMHO.

Mahalo,

Tom

Thanks and I appreciatethe comments Tom!

Get carried away with the pic count sometimes :?....

Yeah, the little guy shot is out of focus a bit, but I kinda liked the "feel of speed" in the photo.
