This is not your ordinary surf trip.
Under an Arctic Sky is a film project documenting the journey to the most remote corner of Iceland in the middle of winter in search of perfect surf. A few days in, the worst storm in twenty five years blows through and shuts down the country, turning the search for waves into a life-threatening prospect. Renowned photographer and artist Chris Burkard together with filmmaker Ben Weiland embarked on an epic journey across the arctic to look for sub-zero temperature waves.
“With three hours of light each day, brutal winter storms and freezing temperatures, Iceland is far from the ideal surf trip. However, this didn’t stop photographer Chris Burkard and filmmaker Ben Weiland from rounding up a crew of surfers to seek out unknown waves in the islands remote north… all during the worst storm to hit Iceland’s shores in 25 years.”
