Surfers recently have been doing the unexpected! Riding the Arctic waves seems to have topped every surfer’s bucket-list. Certainly all things come in full circles but I have never heard of exact opposites, yes, this sport which has been associated with warm weather for long, is now being pulled off by various surfers in subzero temperatures.
Iceland and Norway are the new surfing destinations where surfers brave Arctic waves head on, though with all required protection and only after donning a full body 7 millimeters thick suit with hoods, gloves, and shoes. Have a look at the pics that have been clicked by a photojournalist Olivier Morin; as in Arctic, surfing more seems like a mission, he has certainly captured these brave surfers amidst the frigid waters in their glory moments!
