You've arrived in Nantucket for your big international surfing adventure in New England. Okay, it's no Hawaii, but the waves are good.
Except, of course, when it's February, freezing and the waves have turn into slush.
"When I pulled up to the beach I could see the horizon just look strange," photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh, who lives on Nantucket, wrote me in an email. "When I got to the top of the dunes I saw that about 300 yards out from the shoreline the ocean was starting to freeze."
