Hi Leon57: You are going to be limited by your budget, since you "don't want to spend heaps". There are weatherproof cameras in the lower price range, but not with the long zoom lens needed to shoot surfers while standing on the shore. (Olympus Stylus 410, Oly Stylus Verve S, etc)

And the larger zooms for a reasonable price (Fuji S5100; Olympus C765, Oly C770, Panasonic DMC-FZ5, etc), are not weatherproof.

The choice is going to be influenced byprice rangethat you want to spend for this camera. Give us an idea of thebudget for this camera, and I'm sure you will get a lot of advice from the forum.

Good luck.
