Book News Annotation:

Anyone looking for a vicarious surfing odyssey will be drawn to this luscious photo essay by surfer Soderquist and talented photographer Burkard (who surfed with his camera, shooting while he was under as well as above the water). Traveling in a 1978 Westfalia camper, which becomes the third personality in the photos of the low-budget road trip, the two systematically surfed the California coast from Oregon to Mexico. A DVD of highlights is included. Oversized: 10.25x9.75". Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

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.

An exceptional photographic essay on some of the west coast's best surf spots, secret or not, narrated in an understandable, humble demeanor. Don't let this be categorized as a "coffee table book", as it is so much more. Any outdoorsperson, surfer, sailor, or adventurer would take this book to heart. Worth every penny, I promise.
