    Bring on the cold. How bout an annual Swellinfo winter classic, eh?



    May be a more efficient way to express our annual surf opinion grievances towards one another?

    I know right. Its 17 degrees outside now which is pretty f*ckin tropical. The Barnegat Bay is frozen completely over, probably from the excessive heat that you can't feel with your skin or measure with a thermometer. I'm pretty sure it’s called "hot ice". What kind of loincloth do you use in late January?
    I heard Dave Canterbury (a U.S. army SRT sniper and survival specialist) say 32 degrees in damp coastal Nova Scotia was cold, but what would he know?

    Ironically, 32 degrees is the temperature water takes the form of ice hence the term “freezing cold”. 32 degrees isn’t worth starting a conversation over in late January, but were not talking about 32 degrees are we? That was a point of reference on my part. The huge Arctic air mass that sat on top of many states this week produced temperatures much colder than the freezing point of 32 degrees. Today, the Polar Bear Plunge was cancelled in Asbury Park NJ due to the 10 degree wind chill. Possibly, this “not cold” air mass was all over the news this week because it was a noteworthy “not cold” snap? Perhaps, this conversation was started because these “not cold” temperatures were a stark contrast to the 50 and 60 degree temps (NJ) we experienced the week prior?
    Attempting to convey how tough you are via keyboard by implying temperatures below 20 degrees aren’t cold and saying things like “eat a d*ck” to someone who’s willing to admit that it is in fact cold, is quite the opposite of tough. I suspect the “not cold crew” are the same guys wearing 4/3’s in 42 degree water claiming they’re warm while never surfing more than an hour and citing some other lame excuse to get out of the water. I find that sh*t comical hence my ridiculous sarcasm and loincloth jpeg. You’re supposed to laugh at that sh*t and maybe yourself if your ego isn’t to huge.
    As far as I know (some of you don’t disclose your location), Cresto is the only one who makes sense by saying it’s not cold because he lives in Alaska.
    "talk is cheap", talking tough and being tough are very different things.

    sorry to disappoint you doug, but i infact wear a 5/4 with 7 mil boots and 7 mil gloves and stay out for hours on end. I dress properly for the cold and thats why it doesnt bother me. toughness and ego have absolutely nothing to do with it. I find your sarcasm towards my opinion rather rude and irritating, thats why i told you to eat a ****, not because you think its cold outside. oh, and Aquidneck Island is in Rhode Island just north of you.

    Why am I disappointed? = I'm not
    Was it cold this past week or not? = yes, cold
    Why do you conveniently ignore all the good points I made? = ego
    Why would you tell me to eat a d*ck and while saying I'm rude? = internet tough guy + hypocrisy
    Why would you tell me to sac up while clearly displaying your thin skin? = hypocrisy + internet tough guy
    Your first post was a denial of the Arctic air mass (coldest of the season) that sat on us all week …… c’mon, what is that? I insist you already know that Arctic air is cold air and temps below 20 are also cold. If I were proven wrong about this past week’s temperatures, I’d be glad to admit it, but…..
    Relax yourself guy, I’m just making my point. If you like, I can fashion you a nice possum hide loincloth as a peace offering.
