SURF IN SIBERIA ARCTIC OCEAN 5 by Kokorev Konstantin
“The Arctic ocean. Tundra.” The movie tells us about the Russian surfers riding in the severe conditions of The Far North. Only few ones have tried surfing at this latitude, even fewer have tried it in Russia. The movie’s been shot during one year at different locations in the Murmansk region. The camera crew has filmed different seasons, conditions and moods of those sites. Having overcome all of the difficulties and having been inspired by the northern spirits, our heroes share their impressions about the places they’ve visited, the past of our country and their childhood.

Siberia stretches southwards from the Arctic Ocean to the hills of north-central Kazakhstan and to the national borders of Mongoliaand China. With an area of 13.1 million square kilometres, Siberia accounts for 77% of Russia’s land area, but it is home to just 40 million people – 27% of the country’s population.
