    That’s dedication! Beautiful footage too! Watched it with my wife tonight. She thought they were crazy (this from the person who bought me a dry suit for Christmas!). Pretty sure I know what that says about me.

    Reminds me of the movie "Unsalted". Movie is about Great Lakes surfers who surf year around on the lakes. Apparently, the best waves come in the dead of winter. There are great shots of surfers jumping of icebergs to catch waves in Lake Superior in January!

    I was the unfortunate one to take a swim...still had a great time. Temps where 15 degrees, felt like 5.

    If it's going to be cold you have to embrace it, but you need a river to find open water this time of year! I don't know that I would want to try this though :smile:
