When the surfer came out of the water we talked to him. The “Presqu’ile” surfer’s name is Jason. He is from Newcastle and comes to Presqu’ile regularly to surf. He explained that with the current quality of wetsuits, surfing is more and more an all season’s sports and it is becoming more popular in northern countries like Iceland, Ireland and Canada! He started over a decade ago and was one of only few cold water surfers. In the last 4 years he noticed that more people are joining him.
One newspaper called him once the “cold water cowboy” but I prefer to name him the “Presqu’ile surfer”. He reminded us that we were fortunate to have Presqu’ile, such a great park, close by.
