Surf Photography With Compact Cameras?

 Yes!  The capability of compact cameras sure has changed in recent years.
 
User Gary R. on dpreview posted this story about going to Oahu's North Shore with three compact Lumix Cameras:  DMC-LX5, DMC-TS1 (underwater), and DMC-ZS7.

It is certainly worth clicking through to his pbase album to see the rest of his images:
 
I was hoping to see some images from inside the waves with the TS1, but they aren't there.  Regardless, I think it's impressive how well Gary captured the gorgeous waves and the feeling of the beach.  Sounds pretty good on a rainy cold day here in Northern Virginia.
