This classic surf genre film captures six intrepid surfers, loading vans and boats with boards, wax and grins in search of perfect unridden surf. What’s new? Absent are the sandy hair and boardshorts, instead these surfers wear survival gear and 8mm wetsuits as they adventure into the freezing temperatures of Iceland’s north coast to ride perfect barrels against a backdrop of glaciers and Northern Lights. —DM

Many San Francisco inner-city youth have never been to the beach or had an immersive nature experience. City Surf Project (CSP) was established to give these young citizens an experience in nature and, through surfing, inspire lasting lessons and skills for life. CSP aims at achieving three goals for participants: gaining a respect for nature, experiencing personal growth and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. —IS
