Default Photographing waves, surfers, water-skiing etc

Anybody here do it? I really want to get in the water next to the sportsmen and women with some sort of water-proof housing, a fast wide angle and some fins !! Would really really love to hear some advice / experiences etc.

Matt

P.S. This was asked in the Underwater photography section but doesn't seem to be many visitors there.

It seems to me that fitting a fast wide angle lens into a housing would be the tough part.

You might be better off with something like this:

I was thinking along the lines of these guys. There are a few suppliers who make 'copies' that can house a Nikon D90 for example.

Theres a guy called Clark Little who uses one of their housings with a 10mm fisheye on a Nikon D3.

I want his job !!!!
