Nice action shot that reveals the face very well. As with the others, lots more can be made of it with post processing.

A well timed capture tha's sharp, so that's good.
There looks like a faint halo around the surfer and the board which suggests some selective lightening or darkening in post processing. it would be good to know one way or the other.If you havr, it's not an issue as that's all part and parcel of extracting the most out of the captured image but you need to be very careful with your selections.

As Willie says - more finesse with editing will make this spectacular.

The ship in the background adds a slightly surreal sense of reality, if there is such a thing...

The timing and content are excellent but the image is very flat and under exposed. You get some excellent content, but you do need to give serious thought to getting the exposure right. You are on manual,so how did you decide on the values to set? You must be able to see on the LCD that the tones are a touch adrift.

I suspect the bottom line is that the lighting is just coming from the wrong direction and that is going to be a problem. In that case, you will struggle.

Yes Paul the lighting is always difficult as the action is all over the sea not just in one area and changes constantly.

Actually, that sounds like the perfect justification for using an autoexposure mode, assuming the light changes as well as the location...

Though I wonder how much it does, in fact: in sun, backlit is different, and you can dial in compensation. Is that an approach that you've ever used? Fully manual is, by choice, for predictable lighting and measured working.
