Netflix Recommendations: Under an Arctic Sky

It's been a little while since our last Netflix Recommendation, we have one for you now. It's 40 minutes short documentary I watched last Sunday during a casual cold day in Canada. The documentary is all about surfing as we are following the adventure of five adrenaline junkies on a journey to explore the unknown of Iceland and its conditions. They will have to go through many brutal & windy storms, freezing temperature and a lot more to reach success. This documentary has a collection of amazing drone footage and filmed in areas that I've personally never seen. It's quite inspiring seeing them tackling down all the obstacles together.

With three hours of light each day, brutal winter storms and freezing temperatures, Iceland is far from the ideal surf trip. However, this didn’t stop photographer Chris Burkard and filmmaker Ben Weiland from rounding up a crew of surfers to seek out unknown waves in the islands remote north… all during the worst storm to hit Iceland’s shores in 25 years.
