Stephen, a 400mm+ lens is ideal for surfing, having said that, I shoot with a 200mm and I can get decent results with heavy cropping. My 70-300mm AF does not auto focus on the d40x so I don't use it. I generally use a speed of 1/600+ and play with EV. My aim is to get up close. The link below is what I posted here, not good shots so I imagine with the 300mm you should get decent shots next time you go out.

Cheers
