When you think of surfing, you probably envision the coast of California or the lush beaches of Hawaii. The Arctic Circle most likely never crosses your mind.

Professional surfers Patrick Millin, Brett Barley and Chadd Konig took their boards up to the Arctic Circle for an incredible experience. Between the water and the wind, the surfers had to battle sub-zero temperatures.

You have to give photographer Chris Burkard—and the camera crew—credit as well for braving the bitter cold in order to capture some breathtaking shots.
