Early morning the surf report was basically 1-2 ... was not expecting much ... so, my plan was to shoot something on the beach or close to shore with my Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 , and just have fun.
Knowing full well the last time I was at Pipeline I had a 600mm f2.8 and a 1.4 TC (imho, what you need)
Normally I shoot f5.6 @600mm (and maybe 900 with a TC) ... today I was at f4 , because of Kelia (girl). And unfortunately, only 200mm ... So, I had to make the most of it. (that means a lot of standing at the shoreline lol.
