Beach Party

Annette Funicello Beach Culture
File-This 1965 file photo of youthful actors in a Hollywood movie amuse themselves between shooting of scenes at California’s Malibu Beach by staging an airborne twist exhibition on top of a surf board. Annette Funicello helped create a world as fanciful as Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom when she traded in her Mousketeer ears for a modest one-piece bathing suit . It was a land of perfect waves and sparkling sand, in a place where there was a beach party every night and summer never ended. (AP Photo, File)

Arctic Surfing

California-based adventure photographer Chris Burkard, who previously shot stunning footage of surfers chasing waves in Iceland, has another oceanic project that documents the extreme sport of surfing in the Arctic Circle.

Shot in collaboration with cinematographer Anton Lorimer for SmugMug Films, Arctic Swell—Surfing the Ends of the Earth follows Burkard as he captures professional surfers Patrick Millin, Brett Barley and Chadd Konig riding the waves in the freezing temperatures and harsh conditions of Unstad beach in Norway.
