Arctic Roses is a beautiful photo book about chasing waves and powder above the Arctic Circle with Arthur Longo, Bryan Iguchi, Wolle Nyvelt, Sevi Van Der Meer, Enni Rukajärvi, Alek Östreng, Nils Arvidsson...
There’s not too many places on this planet that could provide good snowboard terrain and good surf, but the Norwegian coastline is one of them. The Arctic truly sounded like the last frontier and perfect terrain to merge the worlds of snowboarding and surfing.
While searching for “Arctic Roses”, a metaphor of the quest the crew went on for good snow and good waves, we wanted to reinforce the connection we have with the elements, either on the mountains or in the ocean. A splitboard approach combined with cold water surfing took the team out of their comfort zone but chasing these extraordinary surroundings with such a strong crew, including legends like Bryan Iguchi and Wolle Nyvelt and younger faces like Sevi Van Der Meer and Arthur Longo, made it all worth it.
