I shot some surfers off of Huntington Beach Pier. I was lucky and spotted a professional surfer named Matt Taylor. It was fun to watch him rip it up.

7) This is Mickey. I was told that he was 80 years old. I love his goggles.


8) Not sure who this was, but he was catching nice air!

Thanks for looking. All shots take with a Canon 20D and Canon 400mm f5.6, handheld. Post processing with PS CS3.

You've caught some great action! I love the goggles too! My one suggestion is some of your flesh tones are a bit too dark. Shot 3 looks closest but the others of Matt are just a bit dark. But that's a quick fix. Otherwise great work!

Cool action, shooting in the surf is hard as the camera is going to meter on the white as this is often prodominent meaning you get an under exposure, I would suggest increasing exposure bias or shooting in manual so you get a good exposure out of the camera.

Looking forward to seeing more.
