i love the beach too. but in the winter when it manages to snow around my place i go snow bording. the snow bord is expencive if you buy one. but you can always go to a ski resort and rent a snow bord and I don't know about where you live but where i live an all day pass is only twenty dollars. if you've never snowborded before you have to have a strong will to get back up on the bord and keep going. as for any thing else I'm usually working so i don't have time and cant help ya with that but i hope you find something soon. much love!!!
