This has to be one of the coolest surfing images I have seen in a long time. If you really analyze this picture you know what I am talking about. Besides the surfer getting air on the wave, this image really tells a story.
1. It seem to be taken late in the day
2. It shows more than just surfing. Take a look at the other water photographer all you see is arm as he passes through the lip of the wave.
3. The outline of the boat in the background indicates that they are surfing from a liveaboard, at the outer Indo reefs.
This is a really nice photography. I am glad I found it on the National Geographic Photography website.
