Ice-cold but perfectly shaped Norwegian waves provide the medium and backdrop for this atypical surf film.
Hávamál is several things — (1) an ancient Norse poem; (2) the name of an Arctic surfing film with Ryan Callinan, Jack Freestone, Luana Silva, Anna Gudauskas, and Chris Burkard; and (3) a source of odd wisdom.
Consider this nugget: “Better gear than good sense / A traveler cannot carry. / A more tedious burden than too much drink / A traveler cannot carry.”
We’ve been there before. Watch Silva, Burkard, and friends catch alluring but obviously frigid waves all over the Scandinavian country’s coast in this short, laid-back film.
The travelers do spend a lot of time in the drink — but not that drink.
