Russians are well known for living in temperatures deep below zero and not having any problem with it at all. They are known to take off their clothes and jump into the cold water. A little vodka and suddenly it’s a lot warmer. As it seems, two of them have prepared to try a new ice sport - ice-surfing. Yup, you read it right.

They grabbed their surfboards and headed to the Lake Baikal in Siberia to try the cold waves. Unfortunately, they got disappointed as soon as they arrived on the spot. There were no waves at all, at least not liquid ones. It didn’t mean that the lake’s water was calm, but the waves were just frozen.

Lake Baikal in Siberia is the oldest and deepest freshwater lake in the world. It is frozen for up to five months a year and its ice is so thick cars often drive across it. The cold temperatures mean "ice waves" form.

Large parts of Lake Baikal not far from the border with Mongolia were frozen close to the shoreline. As the ice approached the shore, it came crashing down, just like a real wave. This phenomenon is known as "ice stacking", and happens after warm air moves across the lake.The ice breaks into shards after it hits the shoreline and remarkably even appears to look like a genuine wave.

Good luck surfing on that, guys! Now you can take photos and videos of the 'ice waves' breaking on the frozen lake, as it seems much more fun.
