IT’S CHALLENGING SOMETIMES… WELL MOST OF THE TIME, but the adventure’s always worth it. When most people think of the northeast they think of tall buildings, wild parties, and corporate muppets. But to all of us, it’s spitting sand barrels and ice cream headaches from duck diving 8ft sets in 39 degree water. The Northeast creates a special breed of individuals. Those who bear the frigid cold in the winter and flat spells in the summer; seem to gain a special appreciation for surfing and the dedication and commitment that comes with it. The energy unleashed when sea meets city is what bonds the surf culture together here in the northeast. This energy is what we are celebrating by launching the first ever CLIF Bar “Cold Shot Challenge”.

Photos must be taken between January 23 – March 31, 2017, NO Screen Grabs or Video Frame Grabs. 

3 winners will receive $1,000 each. One winner for the Empty category Photographer and  two winners for the Surfer category, Surfer and Photographer.

Description:
After spending most of the day digging ourselves out of our driveways, myself and a few buddies decided to utilize the remainder of our day off by surfing some small waves in blizzard conditions. About 15 minutes before sunset we started to notice a yellowish glow on the horizon that increasingly got brighter and brighter until the sun had come out and caused the sky to explode with color. I ran out of the water so quickly, threw my camera in my housing and had enough time to snap off one decent photo of the sunset!
