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.

I'm at 2:30 and there has yet to be ANY surfing! Lotsa beautiful scenery and walking across a difficult, boulder strewn beach, but no surfing!" Why do the editors of these "surf" vids, insist on 5 minutes of travel and geographic scenes in a 7 minute video? Done!

What the heck? It is freezing with global warming? I watched the news and guessed you would still need a decent wetsuit but freezing. HHMMMM I know that I could not see the local mountains before smog laws on cars etc.. but that changed. How do we rapidly change into causing global warming? I suspect the government military controlled HAARP messing with the ionosphere that protects us. The reason hair spray was so bad. I know the difference between a contrail and a chemtrail well too. Have spent time legally supporting our wildlife protectors the DFG on opening day bird hunting staring up. I saw chemtrail after chemtrail across the sky turning the sky into haze making it overcast !!!

this was so beautiful. he is so passionate about his work, and what he said over there about photography when he was like it doesn't have to be the perfect shot, it just has to make you feel like you've actually given away something, like a piece of you to get that shot.' That's true. And this is so beautiful. Absolutely stunning job by the surfers, i cant even IMAGINE what it takes to go out there, water at like 40 degrees and just so that but it's so so beautiful. Captivating. This was captivating. Thank you for this. X.

By the way, what "town" (likely not a town) did these guys stay? It seems that arranging a trip to the arctic is intense and difficult. I didn't think there were any non-scientific settlements in the Arctic really. How did they get a vehicle? So many questions.

Journey to arctic?....who cares?....If you've ever had to fight your way to Rockaway Beach in rush hour traffic to get some tasty barrels before the sun goes down you might think differently. It's freakin Mad Max fury Road on the GWB. Then you might have to battle some punk surf gangs.
Paul B

I can tell you I froze my nuts plenty surfing right here in the lower 48 NJ /Seaside.  Plenty of east coast surfers in RI, NY, NJ, etc freezing their a$$es off for waves. When you drop in and pearl like you see at the beginning of the NJ video. You are falling into 33 water and you're tumbling around under water it doesn't matter where on the planet you are.. You're immersed @ 33 H20. What matters is how good your wetsuit is and if it's leaking, lol. East coast has winter barrels. you just have to freeze your nuts off for them. When a Nor''Easter slams the east coast in January and is pumping 8-10 foot jersey barrels you're paddling out  no matter how cold, if the wind is screaming offshore 30+, water 33, air temp 0, wind chill -20. Same s#it but better winter barrels and closer to home. After the Nor'Ester blows through the skies clear and the cold air moves in and the wind blows W/NW. Big winter storms in NJ/NY dump and then it gets seriously cold for a few weeks.0 -20's, but there's frozen  barrels pumping and you have to go for it no matter how cold.

Geez...

Interesting shmit, but I'm not gonna' be paddlin'-out there, I don't want to paddle-out there, and I don't want to unnecessarily suffer for my session.

And, yes, I enjoy the philosophical and natural beauty of that environment, I've done it, but I'm not goin' there for a surf. Nobody is going to pay me to go there for a surf.

I hate wetsuits, and I hate cold water; I'm a Florida born and bred surfer.

On a daily basis, we all just pull-up to our local piers, jetties, and inlets, and go out and kill it. Nobody need know about it; no props and promotions, no social media aspects, just doin' it; it's where we live.

I also have experience was surfing in the Pacific Ocean in February of midwinter.
Seawater temperature is higher than the outside air temperature I will cause a concussion, but in the cold.
But you can do the Qing a wonderfully seawater also transparent than midsummer of crowded coast.
Indeed Arctic sea of this movie, please pardon!

+Justin Hopkins I live in one of the worlds most famous surf locations in the world. The weather is fine all the time and I dont have to cover myself in rubber to go for a surf in the morning. Also, I dont have the money to travel the world and surf anywhere I want so dont go around rubbing it in people's faces.

Most of this here are from Lofoten, and I also think I see some from Vesterålen/Raftsundet/Hadsel maybe. All is from northern Norway. Most of the surf is done at Undstad it seems. I still wouldn't agree with you about it being as harsh as you say, except for the ocean of course.

Ivan Moen
Ivan Moen - 6 years ago
+Ishma Rotheinstein If my friends and me are nobodies or somebodies doesn't matter, many pro snowboarders also do surfing and skateboard besides snowboarding. I don't need to have any knowledge of surfing or snowboarding what so ever to have an opinion about your failure in applying a so called ''double meaning'' in a non-retarded fashion, let alone your ability to make one of the most irrelevant comparisons of all time. Go do some research, ask every pro snowboarder if he think surfing is stupid.

Ivan Moen
Ivan Moen - 6 years ago
+Ishma Rotheinstein Well your dual meaning wasn't applied in a very good manner. Most people I know who dig snowboarding, also do surfing, or at least don't make retarded comparisons like you do, because they have respect for other people and their interests. My guess would be you don't do either, or you just do snowboarding but you probably suck at it. Also if you troll, you suck pretty bad at it too.

It's kind of weird when photogs and surfers come to Norway and call it harsh, wild, "exotic", beautiful, epic, mystical and whatnot. To us it's just home. The cold is just something you have to deal with if you want to get a good surf. That's it.
