Slurpee waves! The moment semi-frozen breakers 

He took his camera out when he noticed the horizon looked strange – and then spotted the surf had turn slushy. The stunning images were taken as snow and icy rain continues to cause chaos across the country – with states of emergency being declared in the South. And even though March begins on Sunday – forecasters have warned that the arctic conditions are set to continue. Mr Nimerfroh, who posted the pictures on his Instagram account on Wednesday, told the Daily Mail Online: ‘When I pulled up to the beach I could see the horizon just look strange. When I got to the top off the dunes I see that about 300 yards out from the shoreline the ocean was starting to freeze. ‘The high temp that day was around 19 degrees. The wind was howling from south west which would typically make rough or choppy conditions not so good for surfing but since the surface of the sea was frozen slush the wind did not chance the shape. They were perfect dreamy slush waves. ‘Most waves were around two feet with some larger sets slushing through around three foot or waist high. What an experience to be absolutely freezing on the beach watching these roll in while I mind surfed them. ‘The next day I drive up to see if things melted but that same 300 yards out of water froze solid on the surface. No waves at all. I’ve been asking all the fishermen and surfers if they have ever seen such a thing. This is a first they all said.’
