What length lens did you use for this shot? No look of terror in those eye's, so I'm guessing, either there's a good gap between him and those rocks, or he's planning to use that side wash and the rocks to the right to launch staight into the Air Ambulance.

it was shot at 150mm from the rocks. But he is very close. When i zoomed into a 100% on my computer, his face is terrified. His eyes wide open and he realises that he is getting extremely close.

Awesome shot! How far is he from the rocks? Looks like he could launch off that side wash coming in and boost straight onto the rocks. Bit of luck feet first and then walk back round and get in again....

nah he got extremely close. He there is a whole sequence of him getting closer but this one was the craziest. He came out then bailed his board right in front and caught the backwash out from this wave.

Best photo ever? Hmmmmm... I humbly respect your opinion. However, it seems evidenced by member postings that the recent steatopygic set shown at Pipeline has inspired a greater majority to fantasize of deeply probing her moist inner sanctum either frontdoor or backdoor.
