Bodyboarding Movie Explores The Coldest European Waves

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

“The Viking” is considered the most ambitious bodyboarding movie ever filmed. The highly anticipated film trailer is already available here and the European premiere will take place in Capbreton, France, on the 8th May.


The movies tells the story and adventures of the Zion team while surfing incredible waves in England, Ireland, Scotland, France and even Iceland. Ryan Mattick and James Kates have edited the entire film and will showcase it on the giant screen of the Rio Cinema.


“The Viking” is the result of a 100-day extreme bodyboarding experience in Northern Europe, with six experienced bodyboarders. In Iceland, the riders spent hours on hard ice roads and lost their minds several times.

Riding the coldest corners of the Earth was one of the goals in search of an icy utopia. The journey of discovery and plunder leaves no stone unturned and no wave unmolested.
