Despite an extended New Year flat spell, I’ve finally gotten in the water a few times these last few weeks and it’s been fun! Here’s a little video I filmed from this past Monday:
The water temperature is hovering right around 54ºF, which is certainly cold enough to be painful for all exposed skin. I’ve been learning all about the infamous ice cream headache. Wearing booties when longboarding feels just wrong….to stifle the sensation of toes gripping on wax is not ideal. Longboarding is so subtle anyway, and cold water just makes me feel all awkward and heavy…I admire those who brave cold water all year long. I’m ready for warmth.
