For most people, winter season on the east coast is generally associated with staying inside to avoid the chilly temperatures. Not so much for NYSea, a conglomerate of surfers and artists so dedicated that bone chilling temps and frigid surf are mere annoyances in their quest for waves.
Aptly named “Arctic Spring”, their newest video showcases athletes including Brian Pollak, Kurt Rist, Travis Beckman, Leif Engstrom, Zack Dayton, and Thomas Ihnken catching some waves in what can only be described as ice water.

As you can see in the video, the lower temperatures had virtually no negative impact on the performance displayed. If anything, it invigorated the athletes further to produce this quality content.
The video was released in memory of Jason Pollak, Brian Pollak’s brother.
