Chris Burkard explains his yearning for wide open spaces in his TED talk, a personal crusade to explore and find quiet places, the most harsh cold water regions imaginable.

With breathtaking landscapes, remote and desolate places, the highest waves, the most spectacular jumps and a story of surfing to the ends of the world. High Tide is Chris’s photographic homage to surfing in extreme conditions, made by an international surfer and his team. High Tide, A Surf Odyssey follows the surfers in their epic journeys and achievements in the most diverse land- and seascapes. This book portrays the ultimate battle between the elements and mankind: the water and the waves against the board and man.


Searching for wild, remote destinations and offbeat landscapes, Chris Burkard portrays the humble placement of the human in contrast to nature.
