I've been surfing here for about 20 years and if i wasn't locked into a job 250 miles away I would be living here. And this wave is the main reason I would. good work fella I can sense how happy you were when you got out. I don't know who to congrate more. the photographer for giving me a slice of paradise which i have had the pleasure of surfing or the guy with no boots on for snagging a jem. sweet.

Who are all these softies? Most people I know would rather hear the sound of the sea than put a little hat on. As for booties, after 20 minutes or so your feet are numb, so you don't even feel the cold.
