Surf's up! Amazing images from Lofoten’s Arctic surfing paradise goes viral

An award-winning French photographer travelled to Northern Norway to document the joy of surfing in extreme, but beautiful surroundings.

The history of surfing in the small village of Unstad in the Lofoten archipelago goes all the way back to the 1960s. Now surfers from all over the world flock to Lofoten to challenge the mighty (and often freezing) waves.

 

The French photographer Olivier Morin is obviously fascinated with the place, and last week he travelled to Lofoten where he made a really spectacular photo series. Unfortunately, we don’t have the rights to showcase the pictures, but you can see them in several large newspapers from all over the world – for example here, in the Baltimore Sun.

The owner of the company Unstad Arctic Surf, Marion Frantzen, was in contact with Morin during his stay.

“He has been here before as well, and he´s incredible enthusiastic about the atmosphere. He had amazing weather while he was here, the waves were good and the northern lights danced across the sky, so he had a lot to do”, Frantzen says.

 

Morin has been working for the news agency AFP for decades, and is especially known for his sports photography. His incredible picture of Usain Bolt got a lot of attention.

See the whole photo series from Unstad here .
