Chris Burkhart is your typical Hawaiian, a big smile and full of Aloha. Coming from Kauai The Garden Island Burkes soon earned a reputation as a formidable competitor who could mix it up in both big and small waves. As part of The Kauai Classic Team he trained and hanged out with Maligs and Harry. Burkes made a solid impact into the pro ranks and was a regular finalist winning his share of events. For a big boy Burkes was extremely flexible and never let his size become a drawback. Below scooping off the bottom at Pipe as always Bruddah Burkes making his presence felt. Photo Stroh mid 90′s
