Hi Dan. Welcome to Steve's and the Sports forum.

I like the mood of that first shot. Very different. Shots 2 & 3 are less interesting to me because they're just too far away. Once you get to action, I prefer the action to be more tightly framed. The general adage for action photography is: shoot tight, crop tighter.

Again, welcome and thanks for sharing.

A friend took this but didn't explain how or what type of camera and the settings. I'd like to learn about underwater photography.

Not many surf photogs here. However looks like there are some good ones over here:

In general it's poor form to link to other forums. But, I'll do it anyway since surf photography is rather specialized - only a handful of locations you can really accomplish it.

Whoa those are amazing. Like the ones of the photographer himself in and under the water. He must be a GREAT swimmer. Amazing camera he has with the hand hold. Wish I could learn more about how he does it.
