I went out today to snap a few sets thinking the swell would be too big for me to paddle out at my skill level, but I think I would have been able to hold my own with everyone else in the lineup. I filled up my 8GB memory card and ended up with some nice keepers. These are a few from the morning set. All shot with a T2i + 200/2.8II.

I'm not sure who the surfer is. Please identify if you recognize him so I can give him some credit in the photo. These were my only keepers in the morning session. I'll probably make a different thread for the shots I got in the sunset session.

These shots were taken while I was standing next to MMURAD on the sidewalk.

good shots Ron. That first one is really cool how the sun is just hitting the guy standing there. Your 200 handles cropping a lot better than my sigma.

Jaewhy, there was another guy there sitting on the bench with a 100-400, never met him.

Nice captures.
I've never shot surfers before. Does it take that many shots to get a few keepers after filling the 8GB card?

Thanks Mike. That 200L is a really fun lens to work with, but it's still a little short for surf.

Yagimax, I'm still new to surf photog so I'm basically learning as I go. I think I would have more keepers with improved technique and a longer telephoto. That 8GB card was filled from shooting through the day. Roughly 25% of the shots I took were good enough to be keepers. Your setup with the 7D and 100-400L is something I'm looking to step up to in the future.

Yes , the 100-400 is a versatile lens that is still light and portable.
Even at 400, plus the crop factor I wish I had more.

I'll look out for your evening session.
