"Cold Embrace, a poetic vignette of winter surfing in Tofino, British Columbia. Amongst the consistent rain, and the frigid water there is a beauty to be found, a silence, a salvation, a sense of tranquility on the coldest days. A feeling of quiet amongst the harsh winter conditions, and its own unique beauty it brings to the sport of surfing. This piece brings us to a place of romance when it comes to cold water surfing, watching surfer Lydia Ricard, submerge herself so gracefully into the winter elements Canada has to offer."
