The Urchin Diver

Thursday, March 31, 2016

For over three decades my father has been harvesting Sea Urchins from the Santa Barbara Channel Islands. A day in his life can consist of anything as dramatic as dodging sharks and navigating foul weather, but when the elements align he can slip in and out of the sea effortlessly, gathering his bounty of the delicious shellfish. While this is a job cut out for for a select few of hardened men, he wouldn't trade it for anything, as he considers it the ultimate office.

Made possible by generous support from Yeti Coolers, as part of their film series highlighting craftsmen.
