About the Book
Surfing is a way of life. A life dominated by the waves and the tide with a cozy place to pause in between. Creative personalities crafting bold homes, Surf Shacks illustrates how surfers live both on and off shore. Many abodes can fall under the label of surf shack: New York City apartments, cabins nestled next to Royal National Park, or tiny Hawaiian huts. Surfing communities are overflowing with creativity, innovation, and rich personalities. Surf Shacks takes a deeper look at surfers' homes and artistic habits. Glimpses of record collections, strolls through backyard gardens, or a peek into a painter’s studio provide insight into surfers’ lives both on and off shore. Through anecdotes and photographs, illustrations and conversations, Surf Shacks reveals a more personal side to surfing and its eclectic cast of characters.
"Whether you’re ‘in’ to the surfing lifestyle or not – I mean how could you not envy these dudes― the book is an anthology of clean modern design, mixed with heightened personal flare. It’s dripping with aesthetic genius, and mind boggling how these surfing pros are simultaneously some of the best interior designers we’ve ever seen...Honestly, Surf Shacks is more than a coffee table display book. The full color, 288-page hardcover is a wormhole into the power of having and practicing a passion. Through these surfers’ record collections, backyard gardens, and painting studios we not only see unique personalities, but pieces of our own deep-down desires."
"Bound by the presence of surfboards and beachy elements, each space still maintains a unique look through the furniture, artwork, and layouts...The photos and easygoing Q&A style of the book show the individual personalities and lives of the surfers through the lens of their common passion."
"Needless to say, whether you surf or not, this book is worth picking up."
Surf Shacks is a dream book, and it may very well change the way you imagine your future home.
"Surf Shacks, published by Gestalten, a German imprint, somehow manages to cut straight to the heart of California beach living in a way that totally blows our mind. Amidst the pages of beautiful boards, sun-drenched views and loads of amazing bric-a-brac were the homes of some of our fave surf ingenues ― and a few personalities we were stoked to get to know. Flip through for some inspiration ― but be prepared for insane design envy. "
