These shots are always difficult even in good conditions as it is hard to get the kite and surfer in the frame together and once you accomplish that the length of rope disconnects them some. Because of this I like the first image where we can see a kite from one surfer and the other surfer can be brought up in some detail. Well done Chris.

Nice Chris, the top shot you have captured the surfer up close and the backdrop the other surfers chute. It looks good as the surfer and his chute are too far apart generally. I have tried recently without success to photograph wind surfers.

They are all good examples in different ways;
#1 as stated for the 'double' of close up and context in one shot
(in an ideal world, it would have been better if the string of the close up hadn't crossed in front of the distant kite - but I am asking for even more luck than you got this was beyond your control )
#2 has an apparently shorter distance between kite and surfer and you have captured then almost equi-distant above and below the horizon, which helps balance the composition
#3 has visible strings, not often seen
(I'm sure 'strings' isn't the normal term )
