Frigid winter weather didn’t stop one local stand-up paddleboarder from enjoying some SUP surfing in the waves off Montauk. This video by darnel surf proves that the Hamptons is a year round ocean playground for truly hardcore watermen, like Brian here.
That said, hitting the waves in such icy conditions is not for the inexperienced or feint of heart. One must wear a proper wetsuit for protection and make sure to have a buddy in the water and someone on shore who’s aware of your plans.
Most of us are happy enough to live vicariously through videos like this.
