MANERA's latest adventure movie 79°NORTH is out.WATCH THE MOVIE
There is no surf in Sweden, or so they say. Yet, Stockholm-native Tim Latte has forged his own path.
Cold never gets old. Deeply charmed by the wintry waves and the vast immensity of the extraordinary Arctic coastlines, he is forever chasing after unexplored and remote spots around Scandinavia. Up there, each wave is rare and precious, and each session brings amplified emotions.
Often surrounded by rugged, snow-capped mountains and freezing waters, Tim knows that very few get to experience such ethereal settings. Now the epitome of cold-water surfing, he feels privileged to be able to connect on such a unique, profound, and raw level with nature.
Surfing and its lifestyle is a huge part of my daily life as it has given me so many experiences both in and out of the water. The people I've met, the cultures I've experienced, places seen, and my forever love for nature.
I would buy a proper van and roam the Nordic and Baltic coasts for waves for some time. I would also like to help fund and invest in companies and organizations that are green and innovative.
Not sure; swells come and go pretty quick up here. I'm pretty keen on heading back up to Lofoten on a good swell and also pay you guys at the Manera office a visit :)
There have been so many unique experiences over the years, but I think my first trip to Iceland in 2016 was exceptional. A friend and I booked our tickets two days before heading there, and we surfed empty waves and slept in a tent for ten days with northern lights dancing above us most nights.
You will find me working in front of the computer and constantly checking Google Earth and weather charts. Like everyone else, planning the next mission :)
