Some of my old surf pics. Back in 2006 I got a Canon A75 and water housing. Small and compact for photo while surfing.

Recent Video this year at Vetura. Some ankle snapper waves and long boards. Waiting for the bigger surf this month to test out the Lumix cameras.

I think your images are great ....

I like to see the board when taking photos of kites and windsurfers ....

Keep up the good work ....

cheers

Thanks!

Re: Seeing the board
-I have come to (learned) the same conclusion.

Those first two sets make me want to go back and re-edit them. I didn't know didley about sharpening/de-haze, etc when I posted those.

I thought the first two were fine - only thing I would have done would be to use the "curves" in GIMP to lighten the sky a little bit ...

5 hours up and then 5 hours back. I've been watching the surf reports for Tofino for a couple of months now and this was the first time I saw good sized waves AND sunshine all at the same time, so I went for it. I'm bushed, but was giddy to get a chance to have a quick look through the captures from this morning.

Those were just .jpgs edits in the Windows 10 Photos app... that lovely halo :redface: around the surfer is the result. #stilllearning I think I've still got the .raw files around here somewhere.
I haven't used the Windows 10 Photo App - although I did read it was pretty good ....

I use GIMP which is a free alternative to Photoshop and operates in a similar manner - you need to work out how to use layers/masks so it has a learning curve - but once mastered it rewards with highly flexible editing tools .....

cheers

On Dec 10, 2018 they predicted a good swell on the PCH. Thus, drove 9+ hours straight to get there for the morning surf. The early swell was windy, with slight off shore winds gusting at about 15 to 20 mph. By 10AM the sun broke through but winds picked up. Still good conditions for some overhead without much close out. There were some skilled ones out, but not a day where you'd see any pro surfers. Made a video of it.

That’s a long drive to get to the beach! Enjoyed the video, what lens did you use?
