Latitude 66/33, a.k.a. the North Pole, a.k.a. the new best kept secret surf spot.
This past spring, surf photographer and filmmaker Yassine Ouhilal, plus four other surfers, went to the arctic to surf. They began their expedition in Norway, and ended up surfing in beautiful midnight snow showers, riding waves under the incredible Northern Lights.
The trip was also extremely dangerous: painful duck diving, as well as potential frostbite and hypothermia. However, for extreme surfers, it was apparently well worth the risks, considering the insanely beautiful backdrop, and huge waves all to yourself.
Below is documentation of their trip, amazing shots captured with the Canon 5D Mark II. Scroll all the way down for Yassine's amazing video about the expedition, screened at the Atlantic Film Festival.
