A shot from earlier in the year, I dont usually shoot spongers but as there's no sign of swell I thought I process this quickly. Made use off the slower shutter speed as the skies were dull and didnt want to go home just yet.

Slight crop of the bottom edge for a better comp.

No offence mfreddo, I know some sick spongers. Gave it a go myself...took my first bashing from a heavy lip and jumped back on my stick, plus everthing looks soo much bigger when your lying down and as the age creeps up the bootle s geting smaller.

Not much color, but I think that is what makes the yellow 'sponge' stand out. Nice panning shot.

wow, sick one brah. what really grabbed me after appreciating the shot as a whole composition was the shadow under the boogie. it makes that little cracker rocket look a lot bigger than it is. the shot compells me to really zero in on the rider. good job.

Cheers all, with more overcast days than sunny over here you often need to shoot alternative ways to keep the dust from (oops ;-)a) forming.

I see what your saying dahis but as it is he's setting up his line as this quickly jacks up, bowls over and spits him out right into a concrete groyne.

Not to take anything away from this shot because I really like it, but check out this guy's galleries. You'll see several examples of panning surf shots:

I'll be spending a week at the beach over the 4th of July and I'll be trying some of this for certain.

Raff,

great shot. What lenth lens were you using on this shot?

Anyone else, I've never attempted panning with a telephoto, it is possible to pan at 1/30th of a second shooting with a 300mm lens or does camera shake make it too difficult?

Cheers

This was shot with the 100-400L IS, cant remember what focal length. I'll have a look when back home.

I've panned with everything from a 17mm to the 600mm at various speeds. Practice is the key as always.
