    u'll need a fast and long lens.. wakeboarding and surfing happens very far away...

    i'd say a 70-200 f/2.8 or f/4 or a 100-400 f/4 depending on ur preference and needs/budget... get IS versions to help if u're doing panning shots..

    wakeboarding and surfing.

    I would recommend you to get something like 600 f4 cause are you super far from the action

    Price not too sure, should be around 10k++

    50-500? but if sky is overcast, that lens gives horrible results.

    my 2 cents worth. you can try the canon 100-400mm L lens. costs close to S$2500.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....
