Surf Siberia – a project about the people in the vast expanses of our country, the project is about surfing in Russia, that the opportunity exists everywhere and in everything, you must only have a will and a belief in light endeavors. Founders of the project open new places that nobody knows and want to show everyone that we also have waves – and to let them taste the life of a surfer, there is no need to go to the warmer climes.

1 Inspirer and Founder of the project Konstantin Kokorev together with friends travels to different parts of the country in search of the best waves.
2 This project was just an idea for a long time it was impossible to do it, but gradually a group of people who were willing to do this was formed.
3 The first episode was filmed on the Kamchatka in the winter and became a test of strength because the conditions were really difficult.
4 Inaccessibility of spots (about 8 km they had to walk with boards and filming equipment), winter frosts and snow, not taking a cold water into account. But that did not stop the guys, and they decided to move on and discover new places.
5 One episode was filmed in Sochi, which was spiritual and native.
6 Then Kamchatka again, this time in the summer.
7 Now two new episodes are in the process of filming, one of which is being filmed on the Arctic Ocean. Three trips to Russian northwest in the Murmansk region were made, to the area of the Teriberki and peninsula Ribachiy. If to describe the journey in two words, it will be a “harsh north.”
8 A separate story about that you can read on the site Surfsiberia.ru.
9 And in this moment there are final preparations for the trip to the Kuril Islands, which starts on 8 September. They promise an excellent forecast for waves. Guys will live for almost two weeks in tents on the shore of the ocean.
10 We wish them good luck!
