    great lakes surfers have everyone beat for cold water surfing.



    NSsurfer, I understand the contentment of surfing these great waves all to your self, but I have to say that surfing without a wet suit offers a great amount of freedom in itself - not to have your movement restricted by all that rubber. Can I use the sex analogy here?

    I love surfing a bombing winter day when it seems as if the beach is all yours, but there's nothing better in my opinion than being in the trunks.

    you live in NS...youre bred for brain freeze water..I personally hate wearing all the gear thats associated with winter season surfing, i mean i can deal with a wetty but everything else just seems so constricting

    in some of the comments it's said to be the bering sea. wouldnt mind that little shack in the last 1 tho

    when you're stuck living where i do,you've got no choice but to surf,make the most of it,and accept it.
    you stand there looking,getting cold,thinking of the million reasons not to go out,but if it was summer you'd be out there every time.
    easy to discourage yourself this time of year.

    this past sunday was cold,borderline too small.
    my friend stood on the beach checking it,froze and left.
    then it got better and better,but he was already driving back home.
    but i timed the tide right and had a great time,breaking perfect.
    over an hour of nonstop waves to myself,with the smallness perfect for an easy,no paddle,no consequence surf.

    i've surfed where i've seen the water called as low as 30 degrees around here,with below zero wind chill,and still enjoyed myself.
    sometimes it's no fun,but you get over it.
    if you think about what you're doing and plan it right,it can be ok.

    for me,around 30 is rare and insane but doable,under 40 is ok but really cold,45 is fine like now but still very cold,45-50 is cold,50-58 is fine,59-61 is pretty warm,62-65 is warm,65+ is really warm,70+ is perfect.

    i hate wetsuits,but with career/wife's career i'm stuck in this frozen crap,so thank God the suits,boots and gloves keep getting better !
