Took this yesterday in Huntington Beach, Calif., from the pier. Good surf that morning. Canon 20D, 70-200 2.8L IS with 1.4 extender.

Nice shot.

Is your 1.4x tele extender a Canon? At work we have the 2x Canon extender and nobody will use it - it's terrible! I've been given the project to see if we can exchange them (we have two) for the 1.4x.

Yes, it's the 1.4 X II extender. I'm very pleased with the results with the 70-200 2.8L IS lens.

David, you'll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Actually I would normally use my Sigma 120-300 2.8 lens. However, since I was traveling from Texas, I left it behind in favor of the lighter and smallerCanon 70-200 coupled with the 1.4X.

And, finally, a shot to show how early these guys and gals get up to catch the good waves.
