I just stumbled upon this body of work by Steve Russell, classic surf photography taken on Hawaii's legendary North Shore from 1981 until 1993. Russell captured many of the great surfers on film all from his front row seat in the water. 

The water shot is the most difficult photographic image in surf photography. The subject is moving, the background is moving and the photographer is swimming with one arm.
