When you hear the words "surf culture," you probably don't think of the Lone Star State as much as the sun-drenched coasts of Hawaii, California, and Australia. Native Texan, fine art photographer, and lover of all things surf, Kenny Braun is seeking to change that with this visual collection. For more than a decade, the Austin resident toured Texas' gulf coast to wade through the details of this under-appreciated lifestyle, and captured 144 stunning black and white images featuring formidable hurricane swells, delicate water-spouts, and of course, the surfers that breathe life into this little-known sliver of surfing culture. Spread this elegant hardcover across your coffee table and enjoy, dude.
