Tales of the North: Surfing in the Arctic Circle


It truly amazes me what the development in surfing technology has done for us today. Chris Burkard, a photographer known for his astonishing imagery of some of the most bizarre, and remote waves in the world, has made a trip to the Arctic Circle and released this video. Wetsuit Technology has skyrocketed the last few years. As developments have been made in not only improving the material and production of neoprene, but the strategic placement of wool, as well as other elements of tape and rubber to seal off even the coldest of conditions. Surfers can now cross channels and catch swells that have never been explored by man before. Just as the first men who climbed everest and walked on the moon. These men are truly going where no men have gone before.
