Winter Waves – Part 2

Our thoughts often go to the deepest, fluffiest powder days when we watch the tops of breaking waves get blown back to sea by a strong offshore breeze. Maybe the wind reminds us of Old Man Winter’s legendary howl and roar. Or perhaps surfing among these waves – floating in that fluid ocean as the spray of peeling waves rains on our heads – gives us the same feelings we have when gliding in a snowstorm down a powder-coated mountainside.

Ultimately, it is the simple beauty witnessed on both occasions that makes the connection for us. Be it the the wind-blown spray of breaking waves or the billowing clouds of snow behind the descending skier/rider, there is something undeniably surreal and powerful and spectacular going on here…

Here’s to a fun fall surf season, and an snowy winter ahead!
