I like the intense expression on his face, Pete. It's unusual to see a water-skier (is it not a board-surfer or something like that?) with trees as a background, but I have to say that it isn't an ideal background. I can see why you left the space on the right, because there is water spray behind the board, but it is unfortunately getting lost in the foliage. You have managed to get good detail on the skier, considering he was moving fast. The light was quite harsh, and you've almost lost detail in some of the clothing. But it's a good action shot, an unusual position, and well timed.
You really do need to try and find a different viewpoint. Those trees are never going to give you the separation for the figures that images such as this need. Sky is the best background - or water.
i think that if you had used a slightly slower shutter speed and followed the boarder Moore it would have given a better back ground blur, with action shots its best to plan it well so that you can get close enough to the action to get a good image of it , it's easier to blur the back ground the closer you are , if you don't want a blurred back ground on your action shots but instead want to show a still of what's happening try getting a low position almost under a jump looking up to add height to the shot and try to get the athlete at the top of the jump or trick they are tempting , and use a shuter speed of about 1/1000 to capture the moment this is good if you are trying to get a photo of an impresiv trik or if there is an impresiv splash or dust clowd to capture in the shot
