What Happens When An Equatorial Surfer Goes Arctic?
Marlon Gerber heads north.
Most surfers’ ideal destination for a surf trip is Bali.
Warm water, pristine barrels, and an excess of Instagram models sitting on the sand? Yeah, here’s a blank check, scribble in whatever number floats your boat and take it. For Bali native Marlon Gerber, it’s nothing special. Growing up as a surfer in Indonesia is the ultimate privilege.
While most surfers go to Indonesia to snag clips, Gerber did the opposite. He left and went to the Arctic North of Norway. Scandinavian surfer Tim Latte was there to help him adjust to the frigid water and subzero temperatures. Just surfing in a wetsuit alone was enough to throw Gerber off balance.
Marlon struggles with the not so perfect conditions for the first couple sessions, but adjusts accordingly at the end of the trip. The video itself is intense, unique, and features some of the best surf cinematography I’ve seen in a while.
*Disclaimer: This isn’t a jam-packed, high flyin ‘wave after wave’ edit. It has shots of nature and voiceovers. If that upsets you, here’s what I want you to do. Take your pent up dickhead energy, put an old Taylor Steele film in the vcr, and tug one out. Now quit bitching ya cranky geezer.
