Arctic Swell: Surfing the Ends of the Earth

In this new clip from SmugMug and photographer Chris Burkard, he and Professional Surfers Partick 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 bitterly cold seas and wind exact a large price on their minds and bodies, but rewards of adventure, amazement and self-knowledge draw them closer together and push them to tackle the next frontier in surfing. Part of a series from SmugMug Films.
