Well if I had taken this shot first I think I would post it with a contrasting background (black would be good) - when you do this I think you will also want to try and do something with the sky it is possibly overexposed and certainly could do with some colour balance and contrast work - second I would think about cropping down to where the action is but also keeping some of that lovely translucence you have caught beautifully in the wave. I think there is a good image here but right at the moment you are keeping it well hidden.

Firstly, a great moment that will have anyone that has surfed want to go for a surf. The horizontal lines, green colouring of the surf and the timeless classic pose with a raised arm, is all very indicative of British surfing.
After reading ketch's comment I looked at the image differently, I actually had paid so little attention to the sky, that my mind had removed it, it blends too well with the page background and is lost. So I agree crop down to the horizon, but leave the width in. This will leave the surfer very close to the frame but this position will hold as the stylish silhouette has such a strong visual weight and is balanced by the lines and colour in the surf.
