Video | Cold SUP Surfing in Rhode Island

SUP surfing in Rhode Island during the middle of winter is quite simply, cold. The water temps dip into the high-30s, but that doesn’t stop these paddlers from getting out there and enjoying some glassy waves. Plus with the icy temperatures keeping the fair-weather folks out of the water, these paddlers are treated to as many rides as they can handle. The conditions may not look as inviting as Kona or the Bahamas, but these Rhode Island paddlers aren’t worried about that. They’re just looking for some solid swell, and that is exactly what they found.
