Storyline

Inge Wegge (25) and Jørn Ranum (22) spent nine months of cold, Norwegian winter in the isolated and uninhabited bay of a remote, arctic island by the coast of Northern-Norway, facing nothing but the vast Atlantic Ocean. There they built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that washed up on shore, and ate expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away. But the boys brought with them two items of utmost importance: Their surfboards - perhaps their biggest motivation for the arctic adventure. Because the remote bay holds a well kept secret; Some of the worlds finest surfing waves. Written by Anonymous

Enjoyable to watch
8 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at a Banff World Tour showing and it is really a fun movie to watch. So well made for a couple of young guys, clearly on a small budget, with a crazy surfing idea north of the Arctic Circle. Don't expect a modern version of Bruce Brown's classic Endless Summer. While it does share some similar elements with the former, this does not have a great deal of surfing in it. It is more about the journey than the goal. One of the messages in this film is environmental conservation, but the message is expertly delivered without the viewer even knowing the moral to the story until it is pleasantly obvious. Instead of the usual "pejorative application of guilt" that usually comes from films with an environmental theme, these two just go about showing something they did via this entertaining film and leave the message implied. A film about die hard surfers that brave the elements and do something they believe to be good while there. The two stars are the only characters with anything beyond a cameo and their sincerity takes the place of what would be character development in a fictional tale. If you enjoy up and coming cinematography then it is a don't miss. And, if you just want to watch a pleasant film that will leave a smile on your face then it is perfect for that too.
