Highly accomplished, resolutely peripatetic, and self-promo’d to a fare-thee-well, this young photographer has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top of the surf media food chain. He shoots rad shit, is what we’re saying. And it’s always saturated and tack sharp and somewhere you’d like to go—places marked by adventure and multiple-legged flights and lots of expensive long underwear. Burkard’s trips invariably include the use of regionally unique transport. So yeah, we suggested, let’s run some greatest hits, but let’s really focus on the vessels, sleds, campers, and bikes. They have stories too.
