Inge and Jørn spent 9 months of cold, Norwegian winter in the isolated and uninhabited bay of a remote, arctic island. There they built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that washed up on shore and ate expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away. They also brought with them two items of utmost importance: their surfboards. Because the remote bay holds a well kept secret of some of the worlds finest surfing waves.
