SIJ’s Christmas Gift List – The California Surf Project (Surf Diary)
Being surfers from California, we felt compelled to post about The California Surf Project. I’ve thought a lot about this kind of trip – starting in northern CA and surfing all the way down to San Diego, and these two guys not only did it, but took great pics and notes on each spot they surfed. Could be a cool gift for the man / woman in your life who’s locked up in the winter weather and looking for outlets to dream about surfing.
Quit your job, pack your boards, and surf your way down the California coast….
Sound like a daydream? The California Surf Project is the fully illustrated travel diary of two surfers who took this trip of a lifetime. Chris Burkard, a talented photographer, and Eric Soderquist, a professional surfer, cajoled their Volkswagen bus along Highway 1 from the Oregon border to the Tijuana Sloughs and discovered everything the Golden State’s legendary coastline has to offer. Relive their incredible adventure of surfing perfect waves, sharing campfires with total strangers, and keeping the bus running with duct tape and prayers in more than 200 gorgeous photographs, soulful text, and a professionally produced thirty-minute DVD.
