The Winter Albatross is a film documenting the extraordinary lives of a unique community of surfers as they battle the cold, dark and barren winter months of the Northeast.

At the core of these characters' existence is a love that challenges human rationale—a passion for surfing, which during the winter months is found somewhere between survival, addiction and necessity.

The ebbing emotions of joy, fear, love, acceptance and loneliness they experience exploring the icy waters often follow them from the water's edge and manifest themselves back on solid ground. Somewhere between life and surfing the cold North Atlantic, the boundaries that define their very existence blur.
