Long Beach, Long Island Polar Bears Superbowl Splash 2008

Posted by Urgo on Dec. 21, 2008

For the past ten years, on Superbowl sunday people jump into the Atlantic Ocean off of Long Beach (Long Island) NY. I heard about it last year, and this year I decided to join it as well. We lucked out this year since the air temp was ~46F & sunny, and the ocean was ~39F. I'll update this text if I ever hear the official estimate of how many people were there but I'd say many many thousands. The event was great, except I was stupid and left my glasses on while I went in!!! And surprise surprise, they didn't come back out with me. :( Official Site of the Long Beach Polar Bears: http://www.longbeachpolarbears.org/
