Two young men spend nine months of cold winter in the isolated and uninhabited bay of a remote, arctic island by the coast of Northern-Norway.
Inge Wegge (25) and Jorn 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 world's finest surfing waves.

He continued making films and documenting the activities around him, and he's very grateful for having the chance to do what he loves doing and sharing it this way. After making North of the Sun he has had the opportunity to continue filming as a TV photographer.
