Default Lens Recommendation for Surfing Pictures

I have a Canon 5D and was wondering what some recommendations are for taking pictures of surfers as my daughter has recently picked up the sport. I am leaning towards L series glass as I love the 24-105 lens. Thoughts are greatly appreciated!

24-105 is just too short!
-> 400-500mm may be..

I think he meant he has the 24-105 which is an L series, and that he is leaning towards another L series lens (suitable for surfing pictures) based upon his experience with the 24-105L.

Correct I have the Mark II with the 24-105 lens, which I highly recommend. I was leaning towards the EF 300mm f/4L IS USM but worry about not having zoom capabilities.

I like the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM alot but question is 200mm is sufficient on my 5D

And finally I like the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS but do not think it is bright enough.
