Actor and television host Steve Harvey is not a surfer. But recently on his talk show, Harvey noted how cold it was in Chicago the previous weekend: “It’s ridiculous.”
Harvey also notes how there were surfers on Lake Michigan during this “ridiculous” winter weather.
Shimenetto (who you can follow on Instagram @ChicagoSurfer), tells how it was minus-20-degrees with the windchill that day and how he had about 10 pounds of ice on his beard after the session.
Harvey ultimately shows his respect for this bewildering act he doesn’t quite get: “I love anybody that loves something so much that they do at this level. That’s commitmment. He’s obviously having some form of fun, what it is, I don’t know.”
