The California Surf Project — 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. Winner of the 2006 Follow the Light Award, Chris Burkard, 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. This Friday at Hurley Headquarters, check out the movie, art, pictures, and sculptures from the journey and and meet the authors Eric Soderquist and Chris Burkard to talk story.
