Unfortunately surfing needs more zoom that pushes up costs, and also needs fast shutterspeeds that massively pushes up the cost of the lense.
When starting out, you will find the Canon twin lense IS kit is excellent for the money, and 250mm zoom is enough to get close to the surfing.
In a few years, once you get the feel of it, then think about upgrading the lense!

Water photography is hard!
I've only played at shots from the water with a point-and-shoot, but its always been similar - can't see jack while Im doing the shooting, and the shots never come out quite like what I thought they would
My only comment would be - one decent shot out of 40? That's not all that bad. Give me a camera for two hours in any kind of action setting, and I'll take 1000+ shots and then use a dozen (or less) of them. Set it on high speed drive and just keep your finger on that button* - it's not as satisfying as taking that one perfect shot, I know, but...
* unless you're using a film camera. It gets real expensive.
