By thinking ahead and framing your conceivable shots, you can maximise the potential of each session. In surfing, a walk down the beach, or up a hill, can give a new perspective on the one break.

If you have the time, scout the location beforehand and take a few sample shots. It’s crucial that you know the lighting effects of the sun’s movement on the surf, mountain or ramp and plan your day and shoot accordingly. While spontaneous moments of action are the key to good sports photography, being totally ready for them is the key to actually capturing them.
