A blizzard that has buried much of western New York in snow is keeping most residents hunkered down indoors.
But two adventurous surfers saw in the stormy weather an opportunity to ride a few waves, with a guarantee of not having to deal with crowds.
Meet Kevin and Christian, who live along the shore of Lake Erie and like document their adventures around and beyond, and apparently in, Lake Erie.
As the mother of all snow storms swept over Buffalo and the surrounding area, Kevin and Christian took note of conditions—26 degrees, 35-mph wind and a wind chill of 13 degrees—and donned very thick wetsuits before heading to Sunset Bay for what was presumably a very short surf session.
They looked to be having a great time, though, while so many New Yorkers were struggling to cope with the weather.
But then, Kevin and Christian are the hardy, outdoorsy types, so this should not be too surprising.
States a passage on their WNY Expeditioners Facebook page: “Every day we’re blown away by the quality and variety of experiences our land, water, and weather create. Where else can you ice climb in the morning, run whitewater at lunch, and surf at sunset all in the same day?”
Where else, indeed?
