— Year in Sports Pictures - Out: This is one of the photos I fought for throughout the process of editing the pictures down for the the Year in Sports Pictures edit. I love how far away this guy has been flung from his surfboard and how he is being held back by that small strap. I felt it was a great moment that was frozen at the right time. But as we got down to our final round, I finally had to let it go because it just wasn't holding up to the caliber of the other pictures in our final edit.
