There are some sports that are strongly associated with a specific season, yet this series of winter surf photography challenges that view. At least when it comes to the sport of surfing. It depicts an extreme cold weather adventure that looks as epic as it sounds. Surrounded by glaciers and snow-capped mountains, the surfers take on the waves with enthusiasm. This takes the Nike Choose Your Winter campaign to a whole other level.

The winter surf photo series was shot by Chris Burkard, a photographer based in Central Coast, California, the images were captured in Iceland, Norway and Alaska. He has a knack for shooting in remote locations that portray "the humble placement of the human in contrast to nature."
