Scoring with Mike Stewart

Not a country which is known for its surfing, Iceland is usually in the middle of North Atlantic storms and thus houses some hard, freezing waves that are yet to be tackled by surfers. Just finding a new wave wasn’t enough for Pinheiro however, so he set his sights on finding a slab: a type of wave that repels most people, but attracts individuals that see opportunity in fear and the unknown.
