    Spent a few hours shooting some surfers at San Clemente, Ca. A recurring theme is a board getting kicked straight up. Almost looks like it's a ritual. (I haven't surfed in over a decade and I don't remember seeing it then.)

    These are my first attempt at shooting surfing. Got quite a few good ones.

    C&C welcome.

    Don't they still use a tether?

    Yeah, it's probably the new cool thing to do right before you wipe. (or whatever they call it)

    Most of them didn't in this small area. It's just north of Trestles. There were
    5 to 10 people there, including a couple girls. Only a few leashed their boards.

    Thanks. :D

    I suppose it's time to start spending more attention on WB/metering to reduce that blown out white-water.

    Thanks. I'm using a 7D and a Canon 70-200mm L f2.8 II.
