While December and January have been freezing months in the south west of France, something even colder is in the bag for April....

Lofoten Norway... The destination of the next Rip Curl Search trip with the usual crew: Curren, Pablo Guti & Co. but this time there will be a slot for you and three other happy campers... Yes, the Search is becoming interactive! To be part of the trip to the land of Vikings, visit Ripcurl.tv and follow the instructions (the comp closes on the 28th Feb).

Up there you will be tested by the harsh environnement and you will also be testing eco surfboards with the help of the lovely Elise Garrigue as well as the new heated wetsuit from Rip Curl. No, it's not a hoax, their new heated wetty is for real, pumping nice heat waves up your spine when you need it the most. And up there you will need it, that's a promise. So get busy on Ripcurl.tv and be prepared to pack as much rubber as you can to find your own private green room in the Artic Circle.
