Video: Chris Burkard: The Joy of Surfing in Ice-Cold Water

August 10, 2023 Surf, Videos

The cold-weather surf photography has certainly helped put Chris Burkard on the map, and in a talk for TED a number of years ago, he breaks down his surf photography and the joy of surfing in ice-cold water.

From TED:

“Anything that is worth pursuing is going to require us to suffer, just a little bit,” says surf photographer Chris Burkard, as he explains his obsession with the coldest, choppiest, most isolated beaches on earth. With jawdropping photos and stories of places few humans have ever seen — much less surfed — he draws us into his “personal crusade against the mundane.”
