"Itís harsh. But once youíre actually out surfing, itís not too bad"

Itís harsh. But once youíre actually out surfing, itís not too bad. The worse thing is getting changed- putting the wetsuit on and taking the wetsuit off afterwards in the cold weather, freezing cold feet, standing in snow with bare feet.

Interviewer: And how do the conditions compare?

Quite often itís better in winter - the waves have got a lot more power, usually quite a bit bigger. You can get sort of decent swells in the summer as well.
