Since I live just blocks from the beach in Ponce Inlet, FL. One of my pastimes is to visit the jetty and photograph local surfers. Lately, the weather has been unseasonably cold and the water temps have dropped as low as 53′ which means surfers are few and far between. I recently read a post from a local surfer who said after three hours in the water he could not understand why he could no longer ride the waves without falling off his board. It wasn’t until he paddled to shore did he realize his feet were numb. Although some avid surfers have the privilege to travel to warmer climates with warmer water temps, most have to ride out the frigid weather while anticipating the arrival of Spring.
