FLÒTTAN – EXPLORING ICELAND Flòttan (Engl. “the escape”) – Here we go with another episode! We are excited to announce the fifth episode of the Write Your Own Chapter video series. Airing today, “Flòttan – Exploring Iceland” is a windsurf movie starring world class athlete Marc Paré Rico.
Iceland is a unique place. It is raw, beautiful, and stunning. At the same time, it has some of the most extreme and changing weather Marc has witnessed in his entire life.
Forecast Apps are as good unreliable as they can get, and hooded wetsuits become every watersport athlete best friend. Flòttan showcases the search for spots where no one ever thought of sailing on an island where the only line-ups locals are seals and icebergs.
The eighteen-minute episode tells the story of embracing the uncomfortable. It is a series of ups and downs. Of unbreakable optimism put on a test by many disappointments. The story of a tight windsurfing community who proves the spirit of windsurfing once again”
