that's awesome (and I just got curious what water temp might be).

That really is awesome…I'm sure the water temp is warmer than here right now!

She surfed with Sal Masekela and while Sal wore hood, boots and gloves, Julia was hoodless.  She is either more hardcore than I thought, or it wasn't "that" cold.

Was wondering how long it would take.

BTW I checked and the Black Sea surface temps in Sochi is currently 10C or 50 in our terms.

Yes --- 50 degrees our scale is what I found too --- photo of her without the hood had me wondering...   I knew she spends much time in Hawaii -- was cool to hear her take on being outside & water activities (frozen or not).  also looks like she has enviable shell collection.

You WOULD notice that.
