We were already big fans of Central California-based photographer Chris Burkard and his book, The California Surf Project, when he contacted us from out of the blue. He dropped a note to say he liked our work and was down to collaborate.
I love sketching on the go and Chris is constantly traveling the globe, so the idea of putting our work together on some Field Notes-type notebooks made sense! Introducing the Scout Series: pocket-sized notebooks, featuring the surf photography of Chris Burkard on covers designed by Orange & Park. Portable, practical, good looking and available now at orangeandpark.com.
The surfers featured on the notebook covers include Dane Gudauskas shredding in Norway and Keith Malloy casually paddling through glaciers in Iceland. Chris travels to some of the most extreme weather zones on earth to capture these savage watermen in their element but pushing their skills to the limit.
The notebooks are produced using 100% recycled paper and eco-friendly vegetable-based inks by Scout Books in Portland, Oregon.
