The Arctica

”The Arctica” is the first Swedish female surf-edit with surfer Maria Petersson.

Maria is a top female surfer in Scandinavia. ”The Arctica” is the feminized word for The Arctic, to help push the female side of cold water surfing. It is filmed during two months in beautiful Lofoten Islands. 

Filmed and edited by Pontus Pålsson.
