Surfing Storm Wind Swell in Puget Sound 1/12

When it snows once a year in Seattle we always get a strong northerly 20+ knots which after several hours of going builds a good fetch, thus surfable waves 5 minutes from my house on Puget Sound. The wind waves can get big, once had chest high walls coming in. The catch is that the windchill is usually in the teens and yesterday's horizontal sleet left my eyes burning for hours after. But.. good fun, urban surf where there's not supposed to be, and it beats the gym!

Surfing a Islander Bigstick wave ski here, too windy for SUP..
