Challenging the Boundaries of ADHD + a Nordic Lifestyle w/ Iceland’s Pro Surfer Heidar Logi
Heidar Logi is a huge inspiration and close friend of ours ever since traveling around California and spending a month in his home of Iceland together. He has come a long way over the course of his life and especially the last few years. Now with the support of 66 North keeping him warm in the harsh Icelandic backcountry, he is surfing his way onto your screen as we speak and working on himself everyday.
The harshness of the Icelandic weather has never been a barrier for Heidar, who surfs the black beaches of Iceland on an everyday basis.
At an early age, Heidar Logi struggled in school and had a hard time dealing with his attention disorder. However, after finding a path in extreme sports, Heidar managed to overcome his battle with ADHD as he finally had a channel to direct all his excessive energy. We are completely taken by Heidar’s story, who continuously challenges the boundaries of a typical Nordic lifestyle.
“I always dreamed of becoming a sports professional – snowboarding or surfing, but there were so many things stopping me. I was working full-time and would come home tired like a dog. It’s hard to do much more than that. So a few years ago, I made a decision. I decided to focus only on what I loved doing and wanted to keep doing. It took a lot of work and a lot of time and it was pretty scary at first, but now I’m in a place where I can pretty much make everything I want to happen happen.”
