Your Winter - Cold Water Surf Photographic Competition

It has been some time since we ran the last #coldwatersurf photo competition. We have seen some incredible storms hit our coast lines, record swells and the biggest waves ever to hit our shores!

But now that the clocks are changing and the winter has come to an end we want to see what you saw this past winter… The highs, the lows, the ups, the downs, the rewards. Camaraderie, solitude, commitment, no crowds. Why we do what we do. Blow us out of the water!
