Angelica : Sweden : The Winter Session

By on

This session bears little resemblance to the sun kissed representation of women's surfing so often perpetuated. There are no skimpy bikinis here, just a committed surfer making the most of freezing windwaves.

"Isn’t it strange that a bit of headache can feel so good?" says Angelica. "The ocean temperature is about 2 degrees celsius by now, you really felt that it was close to freezing point at today’s surf session, I’m telling you! As soon as you dive under the waves it feels like the entire brain freezes over and like someone gives you a hefty slap in the face. But if it was worth it? I would have done it every day of the week to get some long-awaited surf."
