Ryan Mack’s View of Winter Storm Helena in New Jersey

January 14, 2017 • Videos

“This past week during Winter Storm Helena, I worked on this project with Sam Hammer about coldwater surfing here in New Jersey,” says filmmaker and photographer Ryan Mack. “Last weekendwe had a high of 15º and subzero wind chills. We also had a solid south windswell in the water after a night of six to eight inches of snow, so we woke up and set on a track to find some empty waves. This edit shows the behind the scenes of winter surfing here in Lavallette and on LBI, New Jersey, in the snow and negative temperatures. Sam talks about his dedication for surfing in the winter with additional surfing by Rob Kelly. Film/edit by me with additional footage from Jay Rutkowski and Ryan Simalchik.”
