 ABOUT SURFERS OF LOFOTEN
SURFNORGE / DNB // BRANDED WEB SERIEs

Lofoten Islands is more than a popular travel destination. More than a spectacular PR-stunt. It's more than Mick Fanning, Chris Burkard, northern lights and clichés. For some people, Lofoten is the normal life. The closest wave. The every day life. Because when most people go home, someone always stays.
Through several episodes you'll get to know the people that live in Lofoten Islands all year around and surf in cold water every single day. 
Who are these people?

THE EPISODES
Ep 1 – The First Addicts

Lofoten and Unstad has become a well known surf place, and a bucket list destination thanks to it’s special scenery, cold water and good waves. But how did surfing in the arctic really start? And how does the increasing tourism and crowds impacts the surf community?
Ep 2 – THE ICE BREAKER
Joacim Nyhaugen has been enrolled in online studies the last few years to get as much time in the water as possible. But there's a few challenges up North. And soon fulltime job awaits.
Ep 3 – THE YOUNGSTER
Being the son of Tommy Olsen and Marion Frantzen, owners at Unstad Arctic Surf, Anker had to try surfing – of course. He got hooked – of course. The 18 year old guy always keep the surf stoke high, and now he’s done a pretty radical move to get to surf as much as possible. He’s quite not like every other 18 year old out there. But how will that impact his future?
