The Nordic Surfers are used to similar conditions as the Alaskan King Crab fishermen. Here, good surf comes with strong winds, most of the time foul weather and loads of rain. These guys dive into the blue all year around. We had a chat with one of our local heroes. He started out surfing these conditions wearing his old pink wet suit from the eighties.
