- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
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.

Enduring constant darkness and stormy seas, they discover perfect waves and make history by surfing under the northern lights.
