I cropped the photo, added some motion blur behind the surfboard, a lens flare in the wave and some minor additional adjustments gave me the remake below.
I another crop, below, starts with two boys on a volleyball court, in Long Beach, NY. Which, BTW has a brand new, post Sandy, 2 mile long boardwalk.
This one I cropped and put a ray of sunlight on the boys. In Lightroom, I used the Adjustment Brush, sized the diameter, placed it over the boys and clicked once. I then adjusted Exposure and the other settings to suit.
This crop was a fairly interesting photo unto itself. For a beach gallery, however, I wondered if it would become just another photo.
