Nice capture, color adjustment as it seems a bit blue from here.

White balance is still way off. This is an easy fix though, since you have a nice white gel coat to set your white point.

I hope you don't mind but this is what I came up with. I adjusted white balance, boosted the levels, added some contrast and saturation.

I really like the composition of your shot and the action you captured.

Good job

A tighter crop might work well here (16:9 ratio with the upper portion removed). Nice shot though...I like it.

I like navydocks as well I think fstopmiami either used too much of the levels function (which actually takes pixels out of the picture) or sharpened it too much because it looks grainy ( or maybe my monitor isn't calibrated and I'm a complete idiot). Sometimes sharpening water looks cool but this is not a good example.

I vote navydoc's as well...wow, it's amazing how very minimal P&P can dramatically change a photo! Great original composition though to the OP!
