Surfers live to travel. The quest to find perfect waves is something that grips surfers of all abilities, from novice to expert. Now, from the publishers of leading British surfing magazines Carve and SurfGirl, comes a new book covering every aspect of travel and exploration: where to go, where to stay, what equipment to take, how to get in shape for your trip, how to stay healthy abroad, and how to make the most of your time away. Packed with information and useful tips, as well as awesome photos, Surf Travel will inspire surfers of all levels to load up their boardbags and head off to find the waves of their dreams.
The main section of the book focusses on the classic surfing destinations such as Queenslands Gold Coast, Hawaiis North Shore, the Maldives, the Mentawai Islands, Bali, the Canary Islands, Costa Rica, Barbados, Puerto Rico, Sri Lanka, Fiji, Tahiti, Southwest France and Southern California. Each location is described and dissected, with insider tips about how to score the best conditions. Several less-well known areas are also included for experienced surfers who thirst for pristine, uncrowded waves.
Surfers of all levels will benefit from the range of useful tips on offer, whether theyre going on a road trip to California, a camping trip to France, or a boat trip to Indonesia. All kinds of priceless advice is offered by a writing team of experienced travellers whove visited scores of countries and put in the hard yards.
Surf Travel features more than 250 colour photos by some of the worlds top surf photographers including Andrew Shield, Alan van Gysen, Pete Frieden, Mickey Smith, Roger Sharp, Will Bailey, DJ Struntz, Simon Williams and Tim McKenna.
