Chris Burkard’s ‘Under an Arctic Sky’ film is coming to your town

By now, we’re certain you’ve heard about Chris Burkard’s newest film “Under an Arctic Sky” — and if you haven’t, well get your head out of the sand!

The film documents the arduous trip Burkard and a crew of surfers undertook in Iceland while storms of epic proportions did their best to derail their surfing intentions. The crew endures a lot of cold bitterness, but it eventually pays off with some surfing under the Northern Lights.

“Under an Arctic Sky” finally premiered to the world recently at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City to a sold out crowd. Now embarking on a worldwide tour (as promised by the wildly successful Kickstarter campaign), the crew is currently making stops in Southern California.

So far, the following tour dates have been announced for the first month’s worth of the tour. More information and ways to purchase tickets for each of these can be found at underanarcticsky.com/tour.
