Tried to get some action shots

There were about eight of these guys and one girl playing in
the waves near Ocean City, NJ. I was able to get a few shots
that are OK. I was shooting at ISO 500, F14, between 1/320
and 1/500. Next time I'll set the exposure and hold the f-
stop. I was using a 55 to 250 mm lens.

I especially like the opening image with the rider appearing to have been shot right out of the water heading skyward but all of the images carry a sense of action with them. The sky works well in the images to create a sense of depth in the pictures.

Not so bad being up in the air but hitting the water must really give one a jolt... I can feel the anticipation of the landings right from where I'm sitting at my computer

landing on it or it landing on you could prove painful

Wow, those guys are real jumpers! I have seen quite bit in our harbour but never jumping that high. Good capture but shooting at a higher speed setting would have freeze the action. Are riders allowed to be so close to the beach shores? ;-)

Yeah, I realize that now. I think this may be an area for this kind of
activity. It's a ways away from any other beaches and parking is
limited with half designated just for vehicles with trailers.

Woah! Got some good ones!

All great action shots. My favourite is the last image where he is
coming right towards you.

1/1000 at least.
more keepers if 1/1250 or 1/1600 possible

Straitening the horizon will also improve matters
