When Chris Burkard thinks of his childhood, he thinks of the beach. Having grown up on California’s Central Coast, he feels the beach raised him. The sand and sea sculpted him into a man of the natural world. “We spent all day there, sunrise to sunset,” he remembers. “I guess for some families it’s a huge outing, but because we lived near the coast, the sand was like a second home. That really shaped me – the idea of adventures and micro-adventures so close to home. It helped me to realize you don’t have to go far from home to have a connection with the outdoors.”
