Horizon Lines – Iceland

Enjoy the raw beauty of Iceland as experience by Jeremy Jones, Forrest Shearer, Bryan Iguchi and surfer Kohl Christensen.

In the spirit of explorers before his time, Forrest Shearer gathers a crew consisting of Jeremy Jones, Bryan Iguchi, and surfer Kohl Christensen to travel to Iceland in search of of an idea. A plan that involved snowboarding, surfing, and new experiences. It was only here that they realized they’ve all visited this landscape before but only in childhood dreams. Imagine drawing a picture with snow covered peaks, peeling waves off the coastline, and a sailboat anchored in the bay. Learning from the locals this place does exist if you want it to. You just have to expand your horizon lines.

“How is it that this place does not see more snowboarding? The setup is perfect for foot-powered, high-angle riding—hundreds of mountains laced with steep, clean, chutes. Once you’re here, access is as simple as picking a line, parking or anchoring below it, and walking straight up the 300- to 1,500-foot faces. With thick sea-level air on your side, you can tag multiple lines in a day. Is the elevation too low for trophy-hunting peak-baggers?” – Jeremy Jones
