A Russian cold-water charger. Regularly surfs the Baltic Sea and Arctic Ocean. Russia is a big country, Nikita regularly heads to Kamchatka for surf exploration. Current fav spot is Abhazia, in the Black Sea. Water temps in winter regularly reach -1° Celsius, air temps -10° Celsius and lower. When it is foggy out a thin layer of ice forms on your board, it just adds to the experience. You have to be a venturesome soul to surf these waters. Survival drink after a frigid day surfing… Samogon. Russian moonshine, homemade brew of 60 proof stuff.
