It was decided last year that seven Australian vagabonds would venture north to sup up the liquor of adventure, surf and the salt of the ocean.
I decided to follow, and document the ten days at Unstad, Lofoten, Norway.
I had been to Lofoten before, so knew how beautiful and stunning it is, so it was an opportunity too good to pass up.
From Åre it was a good eleven hour drive to Bodo to catch the ferry to Moskenes, but six of those hours were with a slow puncture, meaning we had to stop at every gas station to top up the tyre.
There is something about travelling through Norway, it is special, never knowing what lies around the the next bend in the road, the sheer beauty.
We arrived into Bodo at 0100 for the 0200 sailing. It was a dark clear night, and as we headed out to sea the light pollution from Bodo dissipated, leaving a crystal clear starry night with a green hue.
We grabbed a couple of hours sleep and awoke to a fantastic sunrise.
We were at Unstad for ten days, waiting for swell, hiking, camping, still waiting for swell, competing in The Lofoten Masters, watching the northern lights and listening to tales aroound the camp fire.
We have almost 1TB of footage to look through and see what we have, but we hope to have a film released in December.
