Gallery: Chris Burkard Surf Photography
"I think we say a lot about who we are through our work."
One of the joys of working at Patagonia is dropping by the photo department and peeking at the recent submissions. We share the best of the best in our catalogs and on our website, and they never fail to inspire us.
One of the many photographers we’re grateful to work with is Chris Burkard from California's Central Coast. You've no doubt seen his work in our print catalogs and our new digital surf catalog. Chris kindly shared some of his photos with us for today's post and a video that captures the spirit of his work.
Hit the jump to see the photos. Warning: after viewing, the urge to shut off your computer and go surfing will be extremely difficult to resist.
