Description
Inge Wegge (25) and Jørn 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.

North of the Sun tells a story about two young guys spending a winter in a Norwegian fjord to live their great passion: SURFING. In order to survive in the cold and dark they build a shelter made of trash which has stranded in the fjord. North of the Sun is a true adventure, far away from parties, Facebook and girls. A magically photographed story about a magic landscape, and two friends having fun.
