US Open of surfing-Huntington Beach 8-5-12

After a week of surfing today is the finals. The beach is packed and I had to squeeze my way on to the sand.

I could not get any closer than this. At least i was standing on a mound of sand that gave me an extra foot of height.

There was no way I would be able to get a spot on the pier so I did not even try.

I was shooting with a Canon 70-200 f2.8. I really need more reach, this photo is a heavy crop. I had to stand up as tall as i could to see over the crowd.

After the surfing was over the beach really emptied out and people hit the water.

With the competition over most of the crowd went home and and a lot of the surfers got in the water. I got a good spot on the pier and got a few good captures.
