It’s hard to find anything fun to do at the beach during Norway’s winter. That is, of course, unless you have a skateboard.
Turbin Film (h/t Digg) recently posted a video showcasing a truly unique feature of a beloved destination. We know Norway is filled with possibilities to enjoy no matter the season; We were just unaware that it boasted beach skateboarding.
This isn’t the same skateboarding along the beach you would enjoy in, say, Santa Monica. What's more, skateboarding on the beach typically devolves into pushing a stagnant board into a hill of sand.
Ah, but something wonderful happens when the beach is frozen.

The video is scant on particulars but does note Hermann Stene, Didrik Galasso, Henrik Lund and Karsten Kleppan are the experts we enjoy watching.
The caption also reads: “Ice, driftwood, foamy waves and … skateboards? Four skaters head north to the cold Norwegian coast, applying their urban skills to a wild canvas of beach flotsam, frozen sand and pastel skies. The result is a beautiful mashup — biting winds and short days, ollies and one ephemeral miniramp.”

There is a longer documentary that goes into depth on the specifics behind this beautiful project that was shot on a frozen beach in Lofoten.
We aren’t the extreme type, so good luck getting us up on a winter morning to see a beach let alone skateboard on one.
But we do have to say; we never knew Norway boasted something this unique and gorgeous.
