The Kamchatka Peninsula runs for nearly 800 miles in Russia’s far east. To the east lies the Pacific Ocean, and to the west the Sea of Okhotsk. It’s a place of primal beauty–volcanoes pepper the horizon while hot springs steam at their feet.
In the winter, the cold, clear air makes for some of the world’s most incredible sunrises. And while there aren’t too many surfers in Russia, the few that make their way out into this line up are some of the luckiest in the world.
