Jon from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Works well not having surfer dude in the middle of the frame. Hence using the rule of thirds. Woolacombe is not known for being very sunny or warm. Looks a cold day to me?

@Jon: Thanks Jon, not the warmest day in the world, but not too cold either!

Ronnie 2¢ from London, United Kingdom

Y've handled these shots very well in the taking and processing with the crisp layer in which the guy is placed.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks Ronnie, and thanks for the email during my absence!

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

This is a great series of shots. They have a bit of a lonely or solitary feeling to them, Very nice.

@Tracy: Thanks Tracy, I think surfing is all about the isolation on the water, you generally dont see a group out there!

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

the composition so well thought out but I'm really taken with the great execution of the exposure. The light is almost entrancing.

@Diane Schuller: Thanks Diane

Nataly from Santa Monica, United States

This guys must be tough surfing in English waters. I can barely step into the Californian... Hawaii, that`s just perfect :)

@Nataly: Aye, but expensive, best just investing in a decent wetsuit!

Mike from Lichfield, United Kingdom

I like this one Dave! Excellent post processing highlighting the surfer.
