Iceland Cold Water Expedition

 

 

Our friends at 654 Stockholm went to Iceland for a cold water surf expedition and brought our garments for a real testing. After an early morning flight they all rendezvoused in Copenhagen for the 8am flight to Reykjavik. Then a six hour road trip, hoping to catch some waves before nightfall.

 

 

 

Even after some serious reconnaissance that didn’t happen on this first day on Iceland, but just the view of Icelandic landscapes made them all crazy stoked .

The next day it was pretty. Pretty perfect. Taken aback by the beauty the team wondered how the indigenous, ancient people of Iceland would like surfing. Would they even have tried it, dressed in seal-skin suits? That would have been such a great look on a wooden plank.
