Surf Texas is the culmination of Austin photographer Kenny Braun's passion and fascination with Texas surf culture. Braun, a Texas native and lifelong surfer, photographed the unique Gulf Coast landscape and the rarefied Texas surfer for over ten years. The oversized, coffee-table book features the photographer's contemplative black-and-white photographs and each picture in the book is paired up with a small tide chart that shows the relative wave activity on the day a picture was taken. This may be the first book ever on the lesser-known Texas surf scene.
We paired up each photograph in the book with a tide chart so the reader can gauge the wave activity on the day the photograph was taken.
The book has gotten a lot of attention for the photographer and the publisher.
