One of the sport’s brightest stars surfs under the universe’s greatest light show

After a year spent like most pro surfers chasing perfect barrels in balmy far flung waters, Mick Fanning admits that “I don’t think I’m well, I can go anywhere in the world, boardshorts, whatever. But no, I come here.” “Here” being the frigid waters off the coast of Norway. While a little off the radar of the WSL and this week’s Pipe crowd, Norway offered an opportunity of a life time to surf under the Northern Lights.
