last year, we were so deprived of nor'easters for swells and snow, that I spent most of the winter mtn biking and hitting the gym (well, the latter I do year round consistently...).
Just rolling with the punches, as it were...
Use it or lose it.
PS. Oh I did a get one good winter session in in San Diego last winter. Thanks, seadart (val). :)
