What a fantastic photo! I love the composition of the whole thing! It has every aspect that a good surf shot needs to be considered classic, the sea. It is really atmospheric due to the wave and the ripples on the water. It has sky in it too, which is very nice, but I do prefer the sea in it. Its a good sea. Well done!

I won't shed any tears if a jet skier gets hammered, leave the piece of crap at home and surf the biggest wave you can without it.

Good come-back loughan, twice, and any Irish man who calls himself Dude needs to pull his head out of his hole, enjoy your wakeboarding lads and try to stay away from real surfers when you're doing it.

Thats too bad, I guess you get passed over for that all expense paid tow surfing trip to your favorite magic seaweed dream vacation. Jet ski changed the future of big wave surfing. Dont make a face before you taste, some kids think its great.

Do water patrol guys regularly ride across the front of 50ft waves when there's nobody out? Nah..... didn't think so. I'm not trying to slag off tow-in, I'm sure they're all brave little water-skiers, it's just not surfing though is it??

I'm guessing it's water patrol during the eddie, no tow-ins this day. Also don't slag off something you couldn't even imagine doing yourself.

Reminds me of the classic footage of Herbie Fletcher's famous "Ragdoll ride" to the beach. However, I don't believe this fellow is in any position to try to recapture the moment.

What a truly fantastic shot - gives an under-talented surfer like myself some idea of what it must be like to be out there facing these giants!! Definitely a shot to stimulate the flight or fight response !!!
