NORTHERN REACHES | STARRING TORREN MARTYN

NORTHER REACHES | STARRING TORREN MARTYN



Mid winter in the Arctic is not a place you’d think of when dreaming up that idyllic surf adventure.

With air temperatures well below -10C degrees, an ocean on the verge of freezing and a wind chill that can kill you in minutes if you’re unprepared.

The Arctic is far from most peoples surfing nirvana.

However for the past couple of years Torren Martyn has found himself chasing waves in what is considered some of the harshest surfing conditions on the planet.

The following two tabs change content below.
Growing up in New Jersey, Shawn discovered and quickly immersed himself in the sub-culture of surfing and skateboarding in the mid 80’s. With a diverse and eclectic background, Shawn has walked the path of a competitive surfer, Hare Krsna monk, action sports industry player in NYC, DIY theology and religions major, and a touring punk rock musician. Now a father and self-proclaimed seeker of the “soul” of surfing, Shawn enjoys sessions with friends at uncrowded peaks along his home state’s shoreline and writing about his surf related experiences.
