A group of surf entrepreneurs from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has developed "Surf Sauna" for cold water surfers who discover paradise in a hot shower after a gelid surf session.
There's nothing like feeling cold. When the water temperature is below 50°F (10°C), we wish we could be sitting in a tropical sunny beach, surrounded by warm grains of sand.
Fortunately, surfers think. Tyler Sauter, Ross Beane and Zak Robinson developed a warm retreat for surfers who brave cold water surf spots, in order to make winter relaxing. Simple yet effective.
"Surf Sauna" may accommodate up to eight freezing surfers. It is built with Western Red Cedar, which is naturally rot resistant and antimicrobial. The chassis and hardware are made from marine grade galvanized and stainless steel to hold up to years of salt water exposure.
Temperatures inside may reach 194°F (90°C), and the list of optional extras include an off road kit, changing tent and shower, or a propane stove upgrade.
They've thought of everything. Plus, and very important, it's portable. "Surf Sauna" can be bought or rented by the day. This cold water surfing antidote will be yours starting at $16,400.
The price includes surf racks, a wood fired stove, the aluminum brim, and brass hatch. Surf clubs and schools will definitely love the idea.
