Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
From its Polynesian origins to the beaches of almost every surfable coastline around the world, the art of surfing has become a truly global phenomenon with millions of surfers living to the rhythm of the tides. While surfing is usually told through a male perspective, women have long been nurturing their own water stories and claiming their rightful place in the world of this sport. In more than 25 exclusive interviews, She Surf profiles the females who are engaged in expanding the art of surfing today.
Through evocative imagery and insightful text written by professional surfer Lauren L. Hill, the book travels from the iconic waves of Hawai‘i to lesser-known surf destinations such as Taghazout, Morocco, and Tofino, Canada. Learn about the forgotten stories of a surfing princess, pioneering wave riders from the 1960s, and the contemporary movers and shakers shaping the scene. She Surf hails the women, past and present, who define the sport and art of surfing.
