BJØRNØYA (Bear Island)

Three brothers set out on a very special trip together. Motivated by the classic surfer’s relentless quest for the perfect wave, they travel to the remote Norwegian island Bear Island.

Each has a sled in tow with a surfboard perched atop. The snow whips them as they set up camp in preparation for the day ahead. The next morning, they hit the virgin waves where no one has surfed before. But one brother must stay ashore, vigilant, poised, with a rifle should Bjørnøya’s natural predator, the Polar Bear emerge.

From the makers of BBFF2014’s smash hit Nordfor Sola (North of the Sun), three brothers set out on a very special trip together. Motivated by the classic surfer’s relentless quest for the perfect wave, they travel to the remote Norwegian island of Bjørnøya (Bear Island). Lugging a surfboard, snowboard, paragliding and various other equipment. They transform the challenging nature of Bear Island into their own playground.
