Surfing always seemed like a dangerous sport to me. The photo you got is really nice of them in the water.

I love this photo :) When I was in high school, so many of the boys would roll in to school late because they couldn't miss the good waves. We had surf reports on the radio each morning. This photo takes me back!

They are very brave and must really love to surf to be out in that cold weather!

That's what wetsuits are for!
