FAROES: The OUTPOST VOL. 2
Bleak, Beautiful and jaw-droppingly spectacular, Chris Burkard and Ben Weiland bring us the their exciting new Outposts feature, from a land that defies adjectives – the Faroe Islands.
In the middle of the North Atlantic, a cluster of 18 jagged islands comprises the Faroe Islands. Dane Gudauskas, Justin Quintal, Sam Hammer, Tyler Warren, Chris Burkard, and Ben Weiland attempt to unravel a coastline of dramatic fjords and plunging waterfalls in search of perfect unsurfed waves. They spend two weeks hopping between the islands, living in seaside cottages and becoming acquainted with the strange and ancient customs of a nation founded by vikings.
Ben Weiland is founder of Arctic Surf, a creative endeavour to research waves along the coldest, most remote coastlines on the planet. Chris Burkard is a self-taught photographer and artist based in Central Coast California, whose work is layered by surf, outdoor, lifestyle and travel. Together they continue to define great moments in modern surf exploration.
