You may not know who Chris Burkard is, but chances are you’ve seen his work. The nature photographer and surfer has gained a huge following by capturing the far flung parts of our globe in compelling and energetic frames. His most recent project, Under An Arctic Sky, takes this core skill of his and exhibits it in a truly stunning 40 minute film.

The documentary tracks a small team of six surfers as they journey up to Iceland to search for some of the rarest waves in the world. The trip is not an easy one. With one of the strongest storms in a quarter century bearing down on them, the group encounters obstacles and dangers only matched by the beauty and might of northern edges of our planet. Whether trying to navigate snow-covered roads, braving the frigid temperatures of the arctic, or surfing under the northern lights – it is all captured in stunning detail. Now back from the far reaches of our planet and out from their dark editing room in Pismo Beach, Chris and filmmaker Ben Weiland are selling digital downloads, physical copies, and coffee table books. You can purchase one for yourself starting at $15. [Purchase]
