Frosty SUP Surfing Dawn Patrol

When temperatures are below freezing, a sunrise SUP surfing session is not at the top of most people’s priority list. In fact, those people will probably look at anyone who goes in the water as a madman. But with the right equipment—a 5 mm wetsuit, booties, gloves and hoodie—those “madmen” will be catching waves and having a blast.

That includes this unnamed paddler who braved the freezing temps and managed to show some style in these fun-sized, frigid waves. In addition to some smooth noseriding, this Viking look-alike pulled off a few 360 spins to keep it interesting. While we can’t deny that it looks cold, SUP surfing clean waves with no crowd makes those temperature seem a whole lot more bearable.

For another frigid SUP surfing session.

Still not cold enough? Take a snowy paddle through Sweden.
