    Windsurfer Alexander Orlov sailboarding on the Ob River near Novosibirsk, Russia.

    Winter is coming and bringing strong winds and deep snow with it, but this is not a reason to give up your hobby if you live in Siberia. Bathing in cold water is not a big deal if you are doing what you love.

    What could possibly be better than swimming in a freezing cold river? Windsurfing on it! Russian athlete Alexander Orlov has shown the real Siberian spirit by sailboarding on the Ob River reservoir near Novosibirsk. Who needs a fur coat or a special suit when you can get all the warmth you need from a fascinating journey in the middle of Siberia?
