Up Yonder!

The other day I took part in a demo of a boat for wakesurfing. It was fairly chilly out and for the first demo; I was the lone brave soul to plunge into the icy water. Minus the right equipment, it was a bit of a shock getting in but I toughed it out.

Compared to what surfers go through north of me, my day was a breeze. So hats off to you my cold water brethren!

As for surfing in locations further north than Florida…I must say that I really miss the waves in North Carolina and northwards. Florida takes some manliness to surf because the vast majority of the breaks require a load of paddling. But there is something about the waves up north. The pack a punch minus the fifty duck dives.

So watch The Wild Lyfe crew pull into a few mid-Atlantic drainers. With a few snow flurries to weed out the less than dedicated.
