Its a custom made mirror...experimenting with sunrise, sunset shots to get more light-color inside the wave. I don't know how it worked out but i am curious to see the shots. Oh and this is just a straight up photo, no funny biz.

You're all wrong. It's instructions in English, French, Spanish, and Chinese

Have you ever heard of experimentation in photography?

Must be a shield for taking power snap fin macros. Or deflecting Brazilians...

I think it's a mini bodyboard so he can ride some waves when the pros are having a rest... or a packing up box.

Agree with you, probably a "wide" diffuser to avoid direct flashing that'd be reflected back by water... Whenever Porty

I was wondering the same thing. The only thing I can think of is either it's a type of flash diffuser or it's to reduce the glare from the sun / reflections off the water. I take water shots too and I have never seen this before. Anyone know what it is?
