What mat rider doesn't enjoy cracking peaks without pesky crowds? And who doesn't enjoy a Slurpee now and again?
Well, play your cards right, and you can have both. Just book a flight out to Nantucket, wait for late February, slip into a 15 mil suit, and have at it!
Waves so cold, they're made of slushy ice...
Earlier this week photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh was walking along the coast of Nantucket when he noticed something odd about the waves crashing on shore. The high temperature was 19°F (-7.2°C) and while the waves weren’t completely frozen, they were thick with pieces of ice, much like the consistency of a Slurpee, or an slushy, or an ICEE, or whatever. It’s amazing to see how the ice changes the form and color of the waves, making them seem almost solid. You can see a few more shots over on Stay Wild Magazine. You can follow more of Nimerfroh’s photography on Instagram.
Leave it to Ian from Ireland to forward us these links...he thinks Nantucket in February is a tropical paradise!
