ARCTIC SURF with  LEON GLATZER

ARCTIC SURF with LEON GLATZER

In this crowded surfing world of ours, the chance to seek out perfect empty waves on the road less traveled is surely one to relish. Follow young German / Costa Rican surfer Leon Glatzer on a journey deep into the Arctic Circle to surf the cold and empty waves. Ever changing conditions: Snow storms, sub zero temperatures, gale force winds, howling onshore. Time to wait, “patience my friend”. The wind swings offshore and the sun shines – timing is everything. Stunning scenery, dramatic snowy mountains, endless fjords, pristine clear water and perfect frigid waves… What a canvas for Leon to take on the elements, not only testing himself mentally, but also testing the endurance of his equipment.
