The new film series Surf Alas­ka from Scott Dick­er­son show­cas­es the rewards and frus­tra­tions of a few surf pio­neers as they search for per­fect waves in the last fron­tier. Few surf locales exist like this any­where else in the world. Over 34,000 miles of wild coast­line wrap around glacial­ly carved fjords, moun­tains, and some of the most remote, unpop­u­lat­ed stretch­es of coast that can be found on earth.

Watch this video to find out what it takes to brave these icy con­di­tions and far-flung surf breaks.
