While frigid temperatures kept most of North America indoors last week, some East Coast surfers brought out their thickest wetsuits to ride some polar vortex swell.

Itís one thing to surf your homebreak when itís cold. But itís something else entirely to leave a place thatís 12 degrees to surf a place where the temp is hovering around zero. Balaram Stackís journey from Long Island to Cape Cod was totally worth it.
