Watch: On Top of the World

Stu Nettle
Reels

"'On Top of the World' follows Johanna Brebner and Aiyana Powell as they travel to the far north of the planet in search of waves and an arctic adventure. The two trek through deep snow filled fjords in sub-zero temperatures to surf extremely cold but beautifully fun waves."

"Filmed by Ishka Folkwell with an original score by Headland."

It's another film put together by needEssentials, so if you like their vibe, stop what you're doing, plug the 'phones in, and switch tracks for the next ten minutes.

Just stunning. What a trip that would've been. To sit there with one other, cruising a little point break. I'm relaxed just watching.

I really enjoyed that. The mellow music worked well with the fantastic cold scenery, cruisey waves, and unique surfing style.

Ski touring!

Imagine skiing spring corn there, with the sun not setting till late evening.

Beautiful scenery, and beautiful light. Could take or leave those waves, though, when it's that cold. But the skiing...

Whilst im not sure where this vid is from exactly (although i think i know) can verify that the skiing up this far North is pretty amazing.

One wonders if they were short and dumpy but surfed just as well, would they have got the gig?

Sorry everyone I just can't get past the ridiculous nature of the whole thing. Too fricken freezing way past cold. Just go snowboarding, skiing or hoon around on a skidoo.

All getting mellow, retro, and cute ,kinda nice but is it natural and real or is it subtle marketing, going for the vanlife combi beardy flower in the hair set, still nice l guess ... l think am confused about it all but it is kinda cool no pun intended

This makes the 9.7º at Urbnsurf seem tropical.

the voiceover is about as unique as a 12yo, stickered board grom saying "sick" in every second sentence
