Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you follow his work, you know Chris Burkard is one of the most prolific and adventurous photographers of his generation." —XGames "In his new book, "Distant Shores: Surfing the Ends of the Earth," Burkard shows how far he's gone with stunning visuals of surf breaks in unlikely places, including Iceland, Norway and Alaska. ... The icy locations provide some of the most visually intriguing images." —San Luis Obispo Tribune "You don’t need to be a surfer to appreciate the width and breadth of what Chris has accomplished with “Distant Shores.” If anything, it helps to lose any preconceived notions you may have about surfing. It’s not always sand, sunshine,and palm trees. Sometimes it’s at night in Iceland, in the shadows of snow-covered mountains and under the glow of the northern lights. Or trekking through the Russian countryside or Mexican cactus fields just to reach the water. Often camping right on the beach, Chris’ images tell stories not only of the landscapes he photographs, but of the people who inhabit those landscapes as well." —The Photo Brigade "His images are gigantic and are best if revisited over and over again, which is exactly why his book, Distant Shores: surfing the ends of the earth is a perfect stage for his work." —The Surfer's View

Format: Hardcover
Just received my copy of this great book. I have been surfing more than 1/2 my life and this book definitely captures the lifestyle and beauty or surfing. Not in another glossy California dream way but the way real surfers desire to explore the world looking for a new, unridden, unexplored ways. Russia, Alaska, Iceland, India and others are shot in a unique point of view and style most other surf photos can't. The printing is fantastic, full bleed spread shots and a large format size add to the epic adventures. I'll never surf most of these spots but i'm stoked to live the dream through this book.

By far my favorite book Chris has put out yet. It's obvious that lots of quality time was spent selecting the photos and organizing them in a way that tells a story. Many photo books end after only a few pages and this one just continues on - saturating the reader with adventure. I'll continuously dive back in every time my thirst for wanderlust kicks in.

Looks good - my niece is a photographer, and lately has found she loves surfing, so we bought it for her for her birthday.
