    • You are covered with frost and it is snowing. A few minus degrees are multiplied by the freezing onshore wind blowing at 30 m/s. A man changes into a 6mm wetsuit in the heavy storm, and heads towards the roaring waves. The temperature of the seawater is close to zero. It’s freezing outside. What the hell..?
      FinnSurf is the world’s first Finnish surf film. It’s a freezing, and at the same time warm documentary of surfboarding in Finland, and in some other places as well. A film about true love and a passion larger than life. Escaping boring life and not
      regretting later. Winning yours fears. Aiming for balance, peace of mind and harmony. Relaxedness
      and pleasure. World where the life is dream and dream is everyday life.
