After a glorious gap year from the world of competitive surfing, Mick Fanning and Norwegian photographers Emil Sollie and Mats Grimsæth teamed up to photograph something never done before…a night surf session under nature’s most radical light show, the Northern Lights.
With the high technology and natural phenomena side of things taken care of, Mick just wanted a good old fashioned surf trip, and with plenty of swell, some wild accommodation, and Kleiner and photographer Trevor Moran on-hand to record the results in a country that is incredibly new to surfing, that’s exactly what he had. And for our ever-evolving Chasing The Shot series, this just might be our favorite release yet. Click play and see how Fanning and Co. got the shot.
