The California Surf Project: The Book

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to quit your job, pack your boards, and surf your way down the California coast? Though it may sound like a daydream, The California Surf Project is a fully photographed travel diary of two surfers who decided to take the 50 day journey of a lifetime.

The adventure unfolds through the eyes of two passionate individuals: Eric Soderquist, a professional surfer, artist and world traveler and Chris Burkard, also an accomplished central California native whose photography has appeared in over 35 international publications.

Their book, The California Surf Project, brings together these two talented adventurers and shares the story of how they made their dream come true.  The book has a splendid selection of pictures from their trip throughout the Californian Coast in their VW Bus.
