Chadd Konig: Arctic Swell

Photographer Chris Burkard and prAna ambassador Chadd Konig, along with professional surfers Patrick Millin and Brett Barley, brave sub-zero temperatures in the Arctic Circle to capture moments of raw beauty in conditions that rank among the harshest in the natural world.

The bitterly cold seas and wind exact a large price on their minds and bodies, but the reward — adventure, amazement, and self-knowledge — draws them closer together and pushes them to tackle the next frontier in surfing.
