If you look at the tailfin,the shape appears to be vertical.Where as the dolphin has a horizontal tailfin.That's no Flipping Flipper Troy!
It kind of looks like a dolphin... And I have been surfing when some dolphins came along, awesome stuff...

Dolphins are cute, I swam with them (we have a kind of a dolphin reserve in the south where they're free to swim - they're not caged, most of the day they're out in the sea, they come back for food. They have a special opening in which they can go in and out. I'm going there this weekend probably )

Seriously its not fake.....However it appears that it is a Dolphin ..... here is a link with another picture taken by the same potographer the same day showing it jumping out of the water.
And here is a cool one I found looking for the other

But I decided to do some research
1) This picture shows that the fin on the back is similar shape;
2) This link says:
The bottlenose dolphin grows to be at most 12 feet (3.7 m) long, sometimes weighing more than 1,400 pounds (635 kg)

ALSO....as to why the surfer didn't see the thing (he may have)...when you're looking at the surface of water at the angle he would be looking at (i.e. lying down on your stomach looking forward at water level) you can rarely see much more than an inch or two under water...the surface refraction of the water usually keeps you from seeing too far down at that angle....also...one would imagine he would be more concerened with the wave than what's riding inside of it
