When the sea freezes it's too cold, I guess you could skate them waves then, like that skater-on-the-wave shot a few weeks back. Best comment so far....keeps the crowds down, so true, thanks for the cold Santa, the christmas gift that keeps on giving year in year out!

it was terrible cold that day but the water was still not too bad,funny thing is after this snow storm it got warm out again and rained away.For those of you crying burrrr,yeah your right because there is no such thing as a winter suit so dont ever bother coming here in winter and in the summer there is never any waves.Nice pic though!Offshore!!

who cares if it's cold it looks good. You can't complain about not having waves if you don't go when you do just because its cold

@ guy who said this is too cold. it really isnt if your using your winter suit. i surf in massachusetts all winter long and even in the 35 degree water only the little part of your face showing is cold. so even in winter, waves are fun:D i guess its the only time we got waves around here

Very cool picture! i imagine this is Santy claus's home break....have you seen anyone surfing in an over stuffed red wetsuit, black bootys, and white head gear...possibly some reindeer parked crooked in a parking space.

-25C with the windchill or thereabouts? the waves look nice as anything, and the photo's great, especially the rays of sunlight in the top right corner
