From the makers of North of the Sun, threebrothers head in search of some of the worlds most extreme waves. With cross country skis on their feet, a sled in tow and surfboards perched on top they journey across a white, barren landscape where the snow endlessly whips to reach virgin waves where no one has surfed before. But one brother must stay ashore, vigilant, poised, with a rifle should Bjørnøya’s natural predator, the Polar Bear, emerge
USA. 2015. 25 mins. Dir Ben Weiland and Chris Burkard
In the middle of the North Atlantic, a cluster of 18 jagged islands comprises the Faroe Islands. Dane Gudauskas, Justin Quintal, Sam Hammer, Tyler Warren, Chris Burkard and Ben Weiland attempt to unravel a coastline of dramatic fjords and plunging waterfalls in search of perfect waves. They spend two weeks hopping between the islands, living in seaside cottages and becoming acquainted with the strange and ancient customs of a nation founded by Vikings.
