Reasons why I believe people surf in cold weather.
- no crowd
- free and widely available parking
- massive waves
- stress release (that's year round)
- good excuse to get some outdoor exercise
- riding a wave makes you feel really good
Maybe not so simple, but:
- the feeling of accomplishment. When I get home from a morning session and it's 10F outside, I kinda feel like I did something most people wouldn't do. I like that feeling.
