Surfing is actually done offline
Belgian photographer Stephan Vanfleteren has traveled the globe to capture the worldwide surf tribe in a way that’s typically his. In his well-known, haunting style of black and white photographs, Vanfleteren depicts the essence of surf identity with portraits of surf icons shredding all over the world.
Ice Cream Headaches: Surf Culture in New York and New Jersey
This goes beyond your calippo brainfreeze. Ice Cream Headaches covers the rough surfers culture in the American Tri-State Area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut). No bounty beaches and cobalt blue seas on this coast. This book is about the people that shape the surf culture on the American east coast with beautiful photography and in depth interviews with the key figures of the scene.
Surf & Stay
Even (or maybe especially?) surfers like to relax at times. Surf & Stay shows you all the best places in the world to eat, sleep, and drop in. Veerle Helsen travelled the coasts of Spain and Portugal with her camper to catch some waves, eat great food and experience all forces the European coastline has to offer. This is your chance to get inspired.
The ultimate battle between the elements and mankind. When photographer Chris Burkard started wielding his camera, he was focused on documentary and nature. Eventually, he uses that same eye to capture the synthesis between the surfer and his/her surroundings. Hauling from sunny California all the way to the cold shores of Norway, this MENDO-made book is a complete odyssey of the current surf culture.
I Love the Sea Side
The ultimate surf and travel guide to southwest Europe. This (almost) beach shorts-pocket size book gives you all you need to know to pack your camper and drive along the European shores. Tips on where to eat, where to sleep, what to see, and of course: where to find the best barrels!
Surfing is not something you just do, you have to live it. Surf Shacks illustrates how surfers live both on and off shore. Whether it’s a villa, a beach shack or simply a vintage Volkswagen van they’re living in, all people and their interiors in this book have one thing in common: they follow the waves.
The scenes below truly embody the times we're living in: normally-bustling places, abandoned and empty. But would you guess that all these pictures were taken in 2019, before the currently…
