To the coldest, most stunning surf backdrops possible.

Furthering his reputation for legendary photography, Chris Burkard brings us more incredible visuals in his upcoming film ‘Under an Arctic Sky’. However, what he is unable to capture in his stills is the story behind the lens, the tedious search for waves; which isn’t always as pretty—or warm.
