Winter is coming, and Samsung has just the thing to get you dreaming about sunshine and warmth again. In partnership with the World Surf League, it has created this 360 degree immersive film around surfing in Tahiti.

Director Taylor Steele (who also filmed a live birth in virtual reality for Samsung) captured the footage at at Teahupo'o, Tahiti, and the film features former WSL World Champion CJ Hobgood. Cheil Worldwide created the campaign and Sydney-based Rapid VR worked on the virtual reality elements.

Like the VR surfing film Jeep created earlier this year, it's enough to make you feel like you're on a surfboard.
