BOSTAD, Norway: The water is icy cold, it's windy and it's drizzling out, but the intrepid group dives in: Far from California's sunny beaches, die-hard surfers flock here year-round to catch the Arctic's cool waves.In a relaxed and friendly ambiance, an Australian pro surfer here to film a commercial hangs out on the beach alongside the local bearded dudes and seven Swedish students who, after a six-hour drive, barely finish raising their tent before throwing themselves into the water, their boards under their arms.This 44-year-old "shaper," with silver gray shoulder-length hair, designs surfboards on his computer, has them made in South Africa, then sells them out of his garage.After selling about 150 last year, he now plans to open the world's northernmost surf store, at 68 degrees North.
