#1 & #6 & #8 are your best shots.
#3, for example, i'd like to see a little further back and the surfer positioned to the left frame so we can see where he is headed. what does the wave setup look like? what maneuver has he just completed or looking to set up here? his eyes are further down the wave.
i would say that generally these could stand to be cropped further out. if you're going for a wider shot then you want to show where the surfer is going, not where they've been. showing a surfer's face is great but if it's peak action of a big maneuver this isn't critical. showing the entire board is a must, especially if you're thinking commercial potential, because this is how sponsors get exposure. additionally, if you can't see the entire board then you're cropped too tight anyways. wipeouts are more common than successful maneuvers, so unless it's a big wipeout that really really makes it stand out these generally aren't considered keeper shots.
