Don't get me wrong, I spend all winter and spring dreaming about the day I can shed off all my rubber and feel the waves on my skin. Grass is always greener, right? But the warmth is not without its disadvantages: Crowds, kooks, and going days without a decent swell are some of the plagues that come with summer. Of course you all know this, but for all you year-round surfers, do you miss the cooler months as well? And what do you miss about it?
With the cold water, the waves are heavier and the herds get thinned out by natural selection. But the things I miss most are the extra adrenaline rush of duck diving under an icy wave and the effect it has on my body. There is something to be said about driving home from a winter session, still shivering, half numb, and feeling the blood rushing to my skin as my body tries desperately to warm itself back up.
How about all of you?
