Chris Burkard: The joy of surfing in ice-cold water

"Anything that is worth pursuing is going to require us to suffer, just a little bit," says surf photographer Chris Burkard, as he explains his obsession with the coldest, choppiest, most isolated beaches on earth. With jawdropping photos and stories of places few humans have ever seen — much less surfed — he draws us into his "personal crusade against the mundane."

Chris has such an amazing talent and is willing to suffer in the most frigid conditions to get the shot... absolutely inspiring. He inspired me to start filming myself. check out my surf edit, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgPp06_aonI

I'm taking swims in the North Sea for which very similarly ppl think am insane. But did research on it and it also actually is good for the muscles and the immune system after workouts and with the right hydration and nutrition. Yes I too got the cramps sometimes but nothing can be compared to it how much it energises me and in the same time relaxes. I am much faster after I'm out and in the icy sea I am not even freezing much. Just love it. I'm so glad to see ppl I feel alike, I feel we share this joy. Sure am too planning to surf too. <3

This is the loser mentality is why he's where he's at and you're where you're at. Read his story and follow his IG. He hustles like crazy. Works on his business about 16 hours somedays and has made this living for himself. And when he was a surf Photographer when he was younger, he was dirt poor. So if you wanna make your life different, change your mindset.

a mcdonalds of photography, it grosses me out. everything is staged, composed, plastic, fake.
these are not surf trips, these are sponsored and choreographed photography expiditions. 
there is also a belittlement of the regular traveler who doesnt get flown in via helichopter, an air of superiority which physicaly manifests in his pursed hands like he's a nobel laureate. 
"quit my job at 19" please... whatever job he had at 19, im sure it wasnt exactly a leap of faith to quit. parents are probably bank. 
p.s. i dont even surf.

As someone who doesn't surf, I don't think you are in a position to criticize surf photography as a medium. For me, I would not care what company is sponsoring a trip I go on, because when you are in the water, that is not what is important. If you have ever been to a surf shoot you know that they are not choreographed, but fluid, just a person surfing and a person taking pictures. I too am bothered by this person's superior and psuedo-intellectual tone, but I find it to be common among all TED talks

For two years or so, I've been taking purely cold showers. I actually don't like taking warm showers anymore. The worst part is getting into the shower when it's cold, but after the shower you feel great. I always feel totally rejuvenated and relaxed when I finish. I recommend everyone to try it at least once. It's also has a ton of health benefits and is better for your skin and hair.

+Albert Hu
Nice to see you agree that it's an ego trip. The hard truth is that people simply can't up sticks and run off to live the dream. Only those with an independent means can afford to do what this man done. Regarding ideas, there was none in this presentation, this was just a little boy excitedly telling people what he got up to recently.

"Sure, it can be unpleasant to work in extreme temperatures and risk death, but all the suffering that he went through just makes his experiences more meaningful"

What work? He went surfing and took photos for gods sake. All the suffering he went through..... really? In a world of real suffering you choose to admire this self inflicted suffering, in fact I did not see suffering in this at all, I seen a guy having a ball with helicopters and surfing, please point out the suffering for me.
Slap Stick

+Albert Hu Well said. The speaker makes himself a bit of a target by being different. Its more interesting to see how some commenters casually dismiss this. I think its out of fear.

+Nick Breen Technology Entertainment Design. Notice their motto is also "Ideas worth spreading" and they explained in their mission statement that ideas have the power "to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world." This is not exclusive to ideas that benefit people through technology, business and social entrepreneurship, but also through spirituality. There's a lot to gain from hearing this speech. This is not just merely an ego trip, but the speaker is sharing his approach to living that is missing in many people's lives. There is a lot of confusion surrounding the topic of how to achieve lasting happiness. The default advice that society keeps telling people is to do well in school, get a job, save up for retirement so they can truly live like a millionaire at the age of 65. What the speaker is proposing is the idea that fulfillment is not always found in the comfort of following the well traveled path, but in the boundary between safety and danger, outside of one's comfort zone. Sure, it can be unpleasant to work in extreme temperatures and risk death, but all the suffering that he went through just makes his experiences more meaningful. Understand that the speaker's message is not made for everyone, but is to benefit people who are open to changing their attitudes and lifestyles to achieve more fulfilling experiences. Just take it or leave it.

+Nick Breen  Whats this bullshit about learning? You don't have to "learn something" everytime you watch a video. You can "appreciate" his amazing photography. Most photographers are garbage. This guy is exceptional and highly in demand all over the world. You can also be inspired if thats what you are looking for. You can also just sit back and enjoy the story. Shall we continue? Whats the purpose of all this hatred? 
Nick Breen
Nick Breen - 5 years ago
+Slap Stick
He gets on a public forum and tells us what he likes to do. Thats it.
We learn nothing and nothing is achieved.
It is great that he can afford to not work and have a full time hobby but what on earth has this to do with TED? Biggest question is what is his point? What is this other than an ego massage?

+Slap Stick Does he want an award perhaps? He went for selfish reasons, he got cold because he chose to be cold. This is a man with an obsession for playing at the beach telling us nothing in particular whilst feeling rather proud of himself.
What was this about exactly?
What has this added to the great book of human knowledge and achievements?

TED once was an event people could learn about the latest developments in technology and medicine. Now it is just a platform for people like this guy to tell us how awesome he is at going on holiday.
