I had some fun playing around using Panorama stitching to create these.

I was fascinated with the radiance of the low sun through the waves rather than the surfing action.

Some of the best surf photos I've seen were shot up close, from in the water with a dive housing.
Absolutely, Barry. As a teenager and young adult, I lived on the beaches between Scarborough Beach and Watermans Bay. However, the fear of exposing a neoprene clad, frumpy physique to an unsuspecting and likely easily offended public, is keeping me anchored to the beach. Right next to the esky, filled with an assortment of continental style rolls and a couple of cold ones.

Actually, it's the skin cancer that worries me the most. Parts of my nose and back are already missing due to those early solar overdoses. It's all wide-brimmed hats and SPF50+ these days.

A few more from the vintage film archives:
A couple shots of Eric Haas who caught a monster outside at Waimea and surfed it all the way in to the shorebreak. The shorebreak breaks in about five feet of water here. Not even the bodyboarders were out on this day. Note the fin stuffed in the back of his board shorts:

Kitesurfers are a difficult subject to photograph because they are so far detached from the kite (compared to say a windsurfer) - so I have found it best to either focus in on the surfer themselves and leave the kite out of the frame or pull back a bit to give a better context for the photo (preferably with several kitesurfers and kites in the frame.

cheers

I forgot to say that another useful angle is from behind when the surfer changes direction and lowers the kite to power away....

Here a few examples from my Facebook group ...
