"I was up near Cayucos trying to meet someone to shoot," says Chris Burkard. "We finally found his place next to this old barn in hills. It looked like a scene from deliverance but as soon as he walked us inside we saw hundreds of vintage surfboards in rafters. It was rad, like they had been sitting for hundreds of years—but every once in a while each one gets ridden. This was only the start of his collection." Photo: Burkard
