Bjørnøya - teaser



After a wonderful stay when we made the documentary and web series "North of the Sun" in 2011, I am more than ready for a new adventure. This time it's me and my brothers, Markus and Håkon Wegge that will go out and explore new waves and nature. And it's Bear Island in Svalbard that is tempting and challenges us. The project will be more extreme, but we will try to focus on the good life one can have in nature.




Inge Wegge (25) and Jørn Ranum (22) spent nine months of cold, Norwegian winter in the isolated and uninhabited bay of a remote, arctic island by the coast of Northern-Norway, facing nothing but the vast Atlantic Ocean. There they built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that washed up on shore, and ate expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away. But the boys brought with them two items of utmost importance: Their surfboards - perhaps their biggest motivation for the arctic adventure. Because the remote bay holds a well kept secret; Some of the worlds finest surfing waves..
