Surfers of Lofoten⎢The First Addicts ⎢E1

Lofoten Islands is a popular travel destination. Mick Fanning has been there. Chris Burkard the same. But for some people, Lofoten is the normal life. The closest wave. The home break. Everyday life. Surfers of Lofoten is a web series about the local surf heroes of Lofoten Islands. The ones that live there chasing the arctic swell in cold water.
