    Composition is amazing. The sun wasn't working with you in some of the shots, though, was it? Not much you can do about that. You nailed the shutter speed- look at those waves and the spray!

    Neil:
    These are good captures. You're going to continue to have a problem though when shooting wet suited surfers in green water with the light behind them. You might try earlier in the day or whenever you can get the light on the surfer and the face of the wave. Looks like your shutter speed is high enough to freeze the action. I generally shoot 1/2000 or 1/2500 when I have enough light.
