SURF THE GREATS & BURKARD STUDIO PRESENTS

UNDER AN ARTIC SKY

On May 25th at The Royal Cinema, 608 College St Toronto

Backed by thousands, the UNDER AN ARTIC SKY Kickstarter exceeded the crew’s expectations and has sent them on a North America tour premiering their much-anticipated film release. Director Chris Burkard, filmer Ben Weiland, and the team are currently driving up the west coast premiering their project at many sold out shows throughout California. SBC Surf is happy to support their tour as a media sponsor at their Toronto premiere on May 25th at the Royal Cinema. For more information on the premiere including the teaser, director bio and link to purchasing tickets scroll down. 

The film follows six surfers along with adventure photographer Chris Burkard and filmmaker Ben

Weiland as they seek out unknown swell in the remote fjords of Iceland’s Hornstrandir Nature

Reserve. Chartering a boat, they depart from Isafjordur on the cusp of the largest storm to make

landfall in twenty-five years. With the knowledge that storms bring legendary swell the crew are

optimistic, but face failure when the storm forces them back to shore. Making the decision to

carry the expedition on by road they experience the brutality of Iceland’s winter and begin to

question if searching out the unknown is worth risking their lives for. Despite setbacks the team

pushes on and finds that uncertainty is the best ingredient for discovering the unimaginable.
