Editorial Reviews

Review

"“In Surf Texas you’ll find a number of images from almost every type of camera you can imagine, both digital and film. From Holgas and disposable waterproof 35mm cameras to digital point-and-shoots and DSLRs, if it snapped a photo, Braun probably used it.”" (Petapixel 2014-07-18)

"Braun's decades of familiarity with the Texas surf culture are on display in "Surf Texas," published by the University of Texas Press this spring. In it, he captures the euphoric highs of carving the waves - in one shot, a trio of surfers are joined by a dolphin - as well as the quieter moments of hanging out on the beach, all presented in a nostalgic black and white." (Houston Chronicle 2014-07-10)

"Surf Texas is a book so good that you’ll be desperate to keep it where it can be seen by anyone who might be passing idly through your living room.  " (It's Nice That 2014-07-10)

"  Surf Texas is a cool and stark new photo essay that looks at what it’s like to be a surfer in Texas." (Eidon 2014-07-10)

"Texas isn’t generally considered a great place to surf, but there are good waves to be found if you know when and where to look. Photographer Kenny Braun is one of those people" (The Click 2014-07-10)

""This book is more than just a coffee table book. It is a nod to the Texas surfing community, evoking an emotional response that only comes from turning the pages."" (Julie Leiendecker The Examiner 2014-10-25)

Surf Texas? Who knew? Kenny Braun did. He has captured this culture in his magnificent photos along the Texas Coast. It is on my coffee table now, and my friends are enjoying it as much as I am as they turn each page!

Started surfing in Texas 1961. Not any history or photos of the good ol' days ! Photos were mediocre.....not any classic days with the original boys out. For the real scoop, talk to guys like Skip Walsh, Jim Rawlinson, Leonard Guidroz, Linne' Holmberg ; who all live in Hawaii now since late 60's.

As a kid, I spent my summers on Surfside Beach on the Texas Gulf Coast, and this wonderful collection of photographs absolutely nails it. The Texas Gulf Coast is a very special place - no, it's not Oahu's North Shore, but it has a very special character (and many "special characters"). Kenny Braun is one of Texas' very finest photographers, as Texas Monthly frequently calls on him to capture one-of-a-kind shots of the Lone Star State's vast landscapes.

This is a beautiful book. Beautiful photography and high quality publishing. It's a great "Texas" gift for someone from Texas or who is entrigued by Texas. I have given many as gifts to friends who surf everywhere and it never disappoints.

Kenny Braun's work is impeccable and is featured frequently in magazines.
