Surfing waves in the Arctic ocean? Definitely possible and way more fun than drilling into it…
Arctic Swell – Surfing the Ends of the Earth
Photographer Chris Burkard and Professional Surfers Patrick Millin, Brett Barley, and Chadd Konig brave sub-zero temperatures in the Arctic Circle to capture moments of raw beauty in conditions that rank among the harshest in the natural world. The bitterly cold seas and wind exact a large price on their minds and bodies, but the reward – adventure, amazement, and self-knowledge – draws them closer together and pushes them to tackle the next frontier in surfing.
Apparently filmed somewhere in the Lofoten islands, Arctic Swell provides us with wonderful pictures and I’m full of respect towards these professional surfers who face challenging elements in order to practice their passion.
