It's not everyday that people get to go surfing. It's even less often that people get to go surfing underneath the Northern Lights, aka Aurora Borealis.

Adventure photographer Chris Burkard is an expert at photographing surfers who ride the coldest, most punishing waves on the planet. He's used to battling the elements in order to get the perfect shot, but one fateful storm in Iceland nearly broke him. Still, he couldn't pass up the opportunity to capture an epic adventure under the greatest light show on earth.
