This is an extremely nice shot. Was it hand-held?

It was shot using a Gitzo GM5561T monopod. The 500's light enough to shoot hand held but not for prolong periods of time wherein you have to wait for the surfers to get into position and especially not on sand.

Thank you handsomerob, willrobb & briansquibb
