Finding Surfing Adventure ‘North of the Sun’


You can’t out-dirtbag Norwegians Inge Wegge and Jørn Ranum. During one of my extended stays in Jackson, I met an Alaskan who lived in a snowbank on the side of the village road, but these dudes are something else. They spent nine months on an isolated island above the Arctic Circle in northwestern Norway and lived in a shelter on the beach that they built from driftwood, flotsam, jetsam, and other stuff that washed up or was scavenged. For calories, they relied on food that was past its expiration point. They froze, they shivered, they froze some more — but they surfed and snowboarded their asses off, content be alone in an uninhabited little bay on this distant North Sea isle.

Nordfor Sola (“North of the Sun”) is the documentary on their adventure. This is the teaser. It worked for me — I can’t wait to see the whole film.
