We are getting a bit too hot these days so let freshen up with some frozen waves that stood still years ago, captured by the lenses of amazing Jonathan Nimerfroh. Massive snowstorms across the northern US affected the wave off the shore of Nantucket in the most epic way possible. The water turned to a slurpee of ice at 12 degrees Fahrenheit (-11.11°C). To make things even cooler, Jonathan was lucky enough to capture the daredevil on ice, surfing like a boss. “I ran up and down the beach, taking as many shots as I could of this freezing, fleeting show of nature,” Jonathan shared. “Slurpee waves are the kind of thing you might only be lucky enough to see once, so I count myself as very lucky to have seen them twice.” Please enjoy this winter throwback in the middle of the summer.
