I might in the future. I'd have to redraw stuff for it.

Wow, yeah, that's really cool! Love the perspective and the way you drew those waves - and the surfboard with his cutie mark is a nice touch.

I know dat feel.  In that case, I'll critique ALL THE THINGS.

Most surfers I see who put their hand in the wave have their hand palm-forward.  The back of a horse's hoof, where fur would be closest to the bottom, is the "palm."  So, in short, Shining Armor's left front hoof is facing the wrong way.  If you were trying to preserve the fact that horses can't do that, I don't really see the point, as they can't balance on two legs on a surf board either!  XD  His right is also, because of where the fur is; it appears that, if he were human, he'd be facing the back of his hand to his body, which is a very odd position!
The rest is fine, though.  Excellent use of fade in the background for atmospheric perspective.
