Thanks all for taking the time to leave a comment.
In the interest of full disclosure, I've shot lots of images from the back of a boat, just never a tournament and never kids/adults this good before. It's one thing shooting your own kid doing a wake to wake jump and quite another to shoot tricks I've never heard of before.
At times I probably could have used a wide angle lens. I was using the 70-200 2.8 IS II on the 1d4 and some of these guys (#3 above) nearly jumped out of the frame on some of their tricks. I was trying to keep some water in the images to give a sense of height. I'm not sure how high the guy in #3 was, but he was way up there. We were riding in a Mastercraft X-star boat that threw the biggest wake I've ever seen and some of the riders knew how to use it to its full potential.
WalnutPond - the guy in #2 and I (and the rest of the guys in the boat) had a good laugh at his facial expressions on this jump. I think he bought the image too!
