It’s rare to find surfers who can will their way across snow covered beaches to get to the lineup. But for the surf-starved in the North East, it’s always summer on the inside when conditions are this crisp and clean. Photo: Zak Bush/Surfer magazine
Zak Bush is an East Coast surf photographer who’ll do anything to catch a few waves, as evidenced by his latest trek. After suffering through a particularly long flat spell in New Jersey, his buddy Mikey DeTemple (who checks the weather forecast every four hours) figured out a solution. He told Bush the surf conditions in Maine would be perfect the following day, if they could just get up there. There was just one problem, DeTemple noted, “We have to drive into a blizzard.”
Fortunately, Bush and DeTemple made it up there in one piece. And when they arrived, they were rewarded with heaven-like lineups. With beaches buried in a fresh blanket of snow, and perfect surf being brushed clean by offshore winds, the boys got their fix of beauty, brotherhood, and board riding.
Bush put together a photo gallery of their road trip for Surfer magazine, and you can view the more of the stunning images by clicking the photo above. And while you’re at it, check out the video, too.
