I'll tell you there is something strange about shoveling out your car so you can go surfing. Then you get to the parking lot and it's not plowed.

And then you get to the break, and there's no crowd... and it's worth it.

There should be a committed tag

the worst part is trying to get warm after. You have a 30second window between getting your wetsuit off and into warm clothes before you freeze in place.

Remember one time when i came home from surf (from extremely freezing session) and was crazy cold... all i dreamed of was hot shower. But surprise! No hot water left in shower. Do i need to say how unhappy i was? :))

it's the best shower of your life, every time... AFTER your feet painfully thaw...

Is the beach far away from where you live? I live 15 min away from beach so i just drive in my wetsuit and change in nice warm shower. :)

after all the perfection pics on msw of this "cow bay", i really doubt our protagonist pictured above really cares about the foot of snow. great shot.

Flat as a witches tit here too and also have had a bad summer with sharks. What's with those mudders?

Cow bay tartare? Or Bovril style? Nice n' cold either way! Looks fun, we've got no swell and about 1,000,000 sharks less then 100yds from the sand here in Florida.

much respect to you guys out in Nova Scotia. Growing up in Corwall was sometimes hard to get the motivation for a mid winter session. This is a whole different experience im sure. Beautiful shot.
