Ice surfers carve up Finland’s frozen sea

Sam Kingsley

What to do if you are a windsurfing enthusiast in a country where the sea freezes over for months of the year?

For a group of Finns, the answer is to kit out sailboards with skates and take to the ice, reaching speeds of up to 100 kilometres per hour in a burgeoning sport that can only be practised in a handful of places around the world.

“I call them happiness machines,” Feodor Gurvits tells AFP, pointing to his self-made board which sits on three blades and has a windsurfing sail attached.

“They really make people smile, and it’s such a joy, pure movement.”
