What you say Mark is very true. Not only do we love the waves but the surrounding in which we ''take'' them.

Like most of the photographers on MSW I am a surfer first and foremost. I don't aim to take pictures of the best surf, I aim to surf it. Sometimes after I come in I take by camera and take pictures of surfers surfing, I post these on MSW for the people who may be in them. I know I get a kick out of seeing pictures of myself surfing or of the surf when I was out a spot. to take these pictures I put on a long lens set the camera to "sports" and push the shutter button. Other times I am stunned by the surroundings I find myself in and want to photograph it. These pictures are much harder to take. You need to use a tripod, polarising filters, graduated filters, lens hoods, and carefully adjust the apeture, time and ISO settings. Clearly my efforts and the efforts of other much better photographers on MSW are appreciated by the people who have given your comments a negative rating (not me). it will be a sad thing if surfers do not appreciate the privilege of their surroundings.
