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… all during the worst storm to hit Iceland’s shores in 25 years. As the storm was building, the crew could sense that something special might take place. The question was, how much risk would they accept in order to experience what was ahead of them. As the saying goes, “there greater the risk, the greater the reward”.
