the water looks lovely translucent, the wave breaking down could be a little more rounder but otherwise this looks great :D

omg! I luv it! Hey, have you ever seen Animalympics? It was an animated movie about animals in the Olympics and there was this sea otter who surfed. It was an amazing movie, and this picture reminds me of it. Just lovely!

Brilliant use of colour. Totally jealous of the otter. Would rather be surfing real waves then the crazy waves of life!

Wow! I don't have any critique for you! I've always loved to draw waves, but couldn't manage it, and to think you did this on PhotoShop! :X I envy your amazifying talent. ;)

Wow, there are so many things I love about this.
1. I love the way the water actually LOOKS like water with the bubbles and the transparency of the wave. You can see the depth in the water too.
2. I love the colors you used. The sky looks so warm and inviting while the water looks so fresh and powerful.
and 3. I love how you can see the water reflect its blue onto the otter. He is obviously IN the picture and he fits into it.
Great Job.

i lik how the lighting at the top of the wave seems to flourish and bloom, perhaps a bit more transistence wold have made it look more realistic but i'm not sure that's what you were going for
=)
NICE JOB!!!

Dude. That is so much fun!
The only thing I'd say is maybe paint the values around him a little lighter, or make him a little darker, that way the image will read, even from far away.
Nice yellow sky! I love yellow. ^_^
