UNNUR

Elli Thor is an Icelandic photographer, surfer, and former kayaker. A decade ago Elli nearly drowned under a waterfall while kayaking a challenging Icelandic river. The near death experience became a catalyst for personal growth and his professional career. After walking away from kayaking, a newfound passion for surfing and the birth of his daughter, Unnur, gave him a new perspective worth living for.

Under An Arctic Sky - Behind The Lens

Some say surfing is losing its adventurous roots.. But maybe those people are just getting a little too comfortable. In a world of man made wave pools and crowded surf spots at once empty lineups “Under an Arctic Sky,” is a film about finding what you are looking for in the most unlikely of places. The key to anything worthwhile is that there has to be some level of uncertainty.

I've never been so stressed out and excited at the same time trying to document something. Too see waves roll into a secluded bay just south of the Arctic Circle with northern lights overhead was surreal.. But to watch my friends surf beneath them was like an out of body experience. I couldn't help but holler as I clicked the shutter. A lot of cold sleepless night went into making that singular session come to be, but like most things a little suffering is what makes them worthwhile.

SURFER Mag trip for 2016. Was in a location deep in the West Fjords. It's the second trip for the article, this one was mainly to round out the video component and to shoot surfing under the Northern Lights.<br />
