This year the ClifBar Cold Shot Challenge 2.0 is offering prize packages for each named winter storm. We’d like to congratulate Ryan Moore (Insta: @ryanmooreart) of Long Island, NY for being the recipient of the Unsound Surf Kalani Swell package. Among the numerous exceptional submissions, Ryan’s dramatic sunset shot of an empty, perfect January peak stood out among the crowd. The photo titled ‘Blue Curl’ really captured the raw beauty and elegance of wintertime surfing in the North East. Awesome job Ryan, the prize package is on its way! Remember to submit your shots as soon as possible after each swell to be in contention for the next prize package.
Winter Storm Kalani arrived with snow and surf for the majority of the East coast. From the Carolinas to Maine, surfers and photographers rejoiced in the slightly-above freezing temperatures and super rippable waves. With plenty of time left in the waiting period and more surf in the forecast, we are excited to see whats to come. Submit entries to nysea.com/coldshot and don’t forget to vote for your favorites! Here is a recap gallery with a handful of Winter Storm Kalani submissions
