This three week expedition took, Geza Scholtz the expedition leader, his brother Andre Scholtz a former backgammon world champion, camera men David a veteran sea Shepard, Bastian a northern lights expert, and photographer Richard Findall to the worlds biggest ice slider park.

The gang met up and traveled to Greenland, Ilulissat Icefjord, just 200Km north of the Arctic Circle. The glacier is the most productive in the Northern Hemisphere, flowing at a rate of 20–35 m (66–115 ft) per day, resulting in around 20 billion tonnes of icebergs calved off and passing out of the fjord every year.

With water temperatures averaging -0.7 Celsius and very few windy days, the crew found it quite challenging to kitesurf with one of natures most revered spectacles.
