Either a real dedicated surfer or just plain mad. A bit of both I think. But fair play to him, far too cold for me.

This guy is actually one of my best friends, he surf's a 3 year old 5.4 oneill heat. Water temp can get as low as 5 degrees celsius. For Dutch measurements the surf was great that day (I heard).

i'm going for my first winter surf on sat, cant wait til i'm standing frozen after with the sorest head i've had in a while, legs bouncing like pammies tits at the start of baywatch and two hands worth of digits, full of heart that really want that post surf spliff but cant muster the dexterity. makes you feel alive.

How majestic of a shot. It works on so many levels, and makes you wonder how sweet this guy must have thought he was when walking over the sand and playing it cool like hes completely unaware that his homosexual lover snaps thousands of digital jerk off shots.

May look mad but as long as you have the right suit etc., its fine....ive just bought a 5mm excel and went out last weekend...2 degrees air temp and 11 degrees sea temp...when i took the suit off i was steaming...stayed out for over 2.5 hours and didnt feel a bit cold.

It´s pretty simple: either you´re a pussy or you go out surfing. This dude made the right choice.
