…winter west coast sailors are picky. They don’t freeze their balls off unless the waves are perfect.
It’s that time of the year again when the polar opposites share one similarity, good conditions for windsurfing. In the southern hemisphere the daily onslaught of windsurfers arriving and departing is ever increasing as spots like Cape Town and Western Australia become more and more poplar. Meanwhile in the northern hemisphere, those who have decided to stay at home, through there own choosing or not, will experience fronts just as gnarly as those of their southern counterpart, except one major difference – temperature. To head out in the waves along the Norwegian coastline at this time of the year is verging on suicidal as freezing winds combined with powerful waves provide, well to be honest, some of the best wave sailing in the world.
