Bathing suit season has officially arrived and with it, the pursuit of the ultimate summer activity, surfing. For the lucky few in LA, the pursuit of surfing and snowboarding (or skiing) - in the same day - is a thing, it’s doable, it’s called the California Double. While none of my ski family located on the West Coast has yet to attempt the feat, the strangers who have – and who wrote about it – captured my imagination. Now sure, southern California is a unique geography with waves perfect for surfing and mountain tops high enough for snow within a short drive. But the so-called California Double CAN be done on the East Coast. It just won’t be a leisurely morning dip, but a windy, gray and frigid experience (borderline terrifying). Six surf and ski-related trivia questions await. Tips Up covers a Mountain Gazette subscriber’s comically yet instructive article entitled, the Etiquette of Nachos Hill (read), HBO’s topical 100-Foot Wave documentary (watch) and Bill Simmon’s Rewatchables podcast (listen). California Heaven by Jakhoy and Schoolboy Q set the vibe for this just chillin’ on the beach listen. Most importantly, cheers to the one and only, California Double!
