Surfing Frozen Slurpee Waves in the US Cold Snap
Yet surfers are still keen to get out there. Even on a waist high day.
Why? Slurpee waves! The pic above is for real, a wave made of ice crystals rolling onto the beach. Out the back it looks more like normal water (that’s just really cold), until you see the surfers picking up chunks of ice.
Through frozen lips and literal chunks of ice hanging off their faces, they say they could feel their fins slicing through the little crystals just like a slurpee. Filmed in Nantucket, the lowest temp recorded this week was minus 15 degrees C - it would have been an incredible surfing experience, but not one for those of us seasoned to go surfing in board shorts and a t-shirt!

Going 'Foil' Bore - Foiling a Tidal Bore in France
Cheesy title aside, this foil surfing is remarkable due to the glassy water and silky smooth skills of the foiler - Ludovic Dulou.
Brrrrrrrr. This Epic surf trip was cold!
Freezing waves, thick wetsuits, angry sea lions. This clip is one of the best to come from the Hawaiian Summer...
