With winter quickly descending upon us, the pursuit of outdoor activities can take a bit of a back seat. The days are short and the weather uncomfortably cold but that doesn’t stop these hardy souls from heading out into the great outdoors. In fact, they took it to the next level and went surfing (yes, surfing!) in the bitterly cold Arctic waters.

This stunning video shows photographer Chris Burkard and professional surfers Patrick Millin, Brett Barley and Chadd Konig brave sub-zero temperatures as they embark on a journey into the Arctic Circle to capture the raw beauty of one of the harshest environments in the world.

It made us feel cold just by watching it, but apart from that it truly is a great piece of visual storytelling. Check it out below and let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments below.
