Well, Winter Storm Stella may not have slammed New York City with an apocalypse of snow (although New England got plenty of the fluffy stuff). But one thing the “nor’easter” did produce in spades was wind, and that meant powerful waves along the East Coast.

And while most residents were content to shack up at home with a cup of cocoa and Netflix, one New Yorker took advantage of the best waves of the season to try surfing.

The surfer, who gave his name as Adam, went "surfing for the first time," and although the waves were a bit sloppy, he definitely enjoyed his first outing and would surf again.

Whether Adam was joking to NYC's PIX 11 camera crew about being a first-timer, or he’s actually insane, this brave dude wins the day.

Good man, Adam. the world needs more people like you.
