Arctic Surfing

Filmmaker Yassine Ouhilal took four top professional surfers to the northern Norwegian and Russian coast to film them surfing in the extreme winter conditions of the Arctic Ocean:

While planning the trip, charts showed that waves would be better in the winter, but it was deemed suicide to try surfing during the coldest and darkest part of the year. Even the spring temperatures hovered between 20 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit; not exactly the most ideal surfing weather. As they traveled around they often found beautiful, calm beaches that taunted them with signs of large waves that came just days before.

I can't believer no comments on this yet. It's a stunning video of these guys surfing in the most brutal possible temperature environment they could actually surf in. I thought it was mesmerizing.
