Surfers in Nova Scotia: some say snow is like sand...

On cold winter mornings, most Canadians are snuggled up in bed. But in Nova Scotia, some self-described crazies are throwing themselves into the Atlantic.

It was way back in the 1960s when locals on Lawrencetown Beach started noticing some free spirits diving into the ocean with surfboards.

Now the Eastern Shore is quickly growing an international reputation as one of the best cold water destinations in the world. Not only are more folks surfing here, but they're also moving here to do it.

Watch the entire surfing documentary by CBC Television.

This is the trailer for "Winter Wave Riders":
