Here is a crop of the artifact in question.
Noticed it right away! Definitely looks like the shape of a person. The proportions are exact and unmistakable.
I see a boy and his dog.

Nobody seems to be mentioning this, but a ghost would be impossible to capture with long exposure.
Their appearances - assuming they are real - are short, very "light" in presence and usually gone in seconds or a blink of an eye.
That means that a figure like a ghost wouldn't even be there long enough to be captured in the picture, the same way even a person passing in front of the camera would appear as a smoke trail and not as a shadow or human figure. And that's a person, a solid object with volume and matter, and it becomes a blur...
Also the apparition facing you looks fairly young. Are you in the age range of the average surfer?
Why were you taking pics?
Did you sense anythjng there?
See anything with your naked eye?
Have you been there before? Have you been drawn back?
I see a male standing there with what looks like a cat. (?) Are there any tales/stories from this area on ghost or maybe a death past or recent?
He was only in the water up to his ankles.
No it would only prove you can duplicate the image using that technique.
I have got a question for the op, have you ever taken a picture since you have had that camera Nikon D3100 of a guy or dog/cat standing in that position that is showing up as this anomaly?
My apologies if you've already explained this. When you took the photo,was the camera on a tripod (it has to have been for a 4 second exposure),and did you use the automatic timer function to open the shutter and stand back while the photo was being taken,i.e. you weren't looking through the viewfinder. (Yes I know the viewfinder goes black when taking a photo when the mirror comes up,but I thought I'd ask anyway.)
It's a smudge created on a filter placed in front of the lense as part as some experiment to see what kind of analysis and answers you'd get.
Judging from the aerial images provided in the thread, where the ghost-image figure is standing would certainly be shallow.
Tell me how accurate I am VVV.
That was a friend and you know of the older photo it's from. You "did something to your camera" that caused this.
Could it be a reflection?
Was there anybody near?
Looks to me like someone walked into the field of view, the part that looks like a pair of legs and possibly the body ie not a complete figure looks like the person walking just a you start your exposure then stopped and the rest of the exposure was long enough to record his shape.
You wouldn't be the first person not to notice someone walk into a shot after the button is pressed and you wont be the last.

It would probably haunt me at night.
