SmugMug presents cold-water surf adventure in Norway, through the lens of SURFER's Chris Burkard

| posted on July 17, 2014

Photographer Chris Burkard and surfers Patrick Millin, Brett Barley, and Chadd Konig brave sub-zero temperatures in the Arctic Circle to capture moments of raw beauty in conditions that rank among the harshest in the natural world. The bitter, cold seas and wind exact a large price on their minds and bodies, but the reward—adventure, amazement, and self-knowledge—draws them closer together and pushes them to tackle the next frontier.
