It's been at least a year since I've shot any surfing pics [we don't have much of it in Missouri].
Must say I miss it. Only having a 300mm + 1.4x teleconverter is a bit limiting at times, but its still a blast to watch great waves.
The size of the waves vs. the Redondo breakwater rocks vs. man is pretty nuts - if you fall and get pulled into the rocks you are basically done for.
With some sweet waves breaking on the rocks, got the 16-35mm out to see what the view was like as the surfers launched out.
A friend of mine here has a surf housing, hopefully I will be able to use it soon to shoot from the water! Thats the perspective I think is the most interesting for surf pics.
