"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"
Your probably right, but having never surfed in board shorts, i don't really know the difference, so i'm happy as it is. aha
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.
Looking at this picture a second time, I have to question its validity. Was it photoshoped? The only thing that makes me second guess it is that the guy on the left has a freakin icicle hanging from his eyebrow. That just seams totally unreal.
BEACHBREAK....my friend...sir, you could not have stated it better than that. I feel your pain, angst and hunger for whatever temp you can get. Always seems that the colder it is...the easier it is to get out.
Although I do hate the ice cream headaches.
question...the water temp for monmouth county is saying 51 while the news after this plane crash today is reporting the hudson (which is not much further north) to be 35 ro 40...whose right? they just making these more dramatic than it is?
The water hasnt been that cold in De the past couple years. Low 40s. I guess it can go lower into high 30s on bad winters. My coldest was prob low 20s air with howling northwest wind and knee high waves. Just went out for the heck of it after being dry for like three weeks. Waves look sooo bad long term and soo cold. Im hopin the whole east coast gets out of this little pattern.
Whatever. Nothin a 5/4/3 and 7 mil boots and mittens cant handle!
