Winter Wave Riding
East Coast winters bring the best surf and it is cold. Hunting waves around New York City is madness and sacrifice. There is nothing easy about it. You have to be flexible, available, committed; have access to a car, beat traffic, catch trains, get snowed in at the right spot, invest in good wetsuit gear, leave responsibilities and relationships behind for the thrill of wave riding. Sometimes irrational, surfers here have a unique energy and remarkable passion.
