The impossible project of making a skateboard ramp of frozen sand.

When Jørn Ranum lived in Lofoten he noticed how the cold temperatures had made one of the many beaches where hard as concrete .  Since Jorn is a skater , he took his skateboard and skated along the beach between majestic mountains and the deep blue sea. This was the beginning of his idea and his biggest project : to create a skateboard park of sand and water , and make the all-time most original skateboard movie ! The documentary On thin ice shows the whole process , trying to understand what happens in Jørns creative head, and deals with the challenge of doing something that appears quite pointless, because sand , water and cold weather are all skaters worst nightmare,.
