Surfing & Love Triangle
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is on location in Stavanger, Norway with outstanding photography on a rocky coast line with large cold waves and very young surfers who use short boards and really do not surf professionally. The film opens up with a marriage and a guy named Even, (Vegar Hoel) who was once married to this girl, Karen, (Silje Salomonsen) and is invited to be the best man and the sad part of this event is the fact that Even is still in love with Karen. The weather conditions in Norway for Winter surfing is below zero and water as cold as ice and not like California surfing conditions. This film keeps your interest from the very beginning to the end. Enjoy.
