    By steady and this, I assume you mean still photography. Depending on the photographer there are many different ways. I'm going to assume that they are using a general camera with good manual settings. They can either handhold and use an extremely fast shutter speed or for about 10 quid you can pop for a vehicle mount, which usually work on surf boards.

    No ways really. Best you could do is use a small camera and again, a vehicle mount for a few quid. It's only going to be as smooth as the surf board. Unless you want to surf with an steadicam.
