An eclectic compilation of surfer’s homes. Surfing is a way of life. A life dominated by the waves and the tide with a cozy place to pause in between.
Many abodes can fall under the label of surf shack: city apartments, cabins nestled next to national parks, or tiny Hawaiian huts. Surfing communities are overflowing with creativity, innovation, and rich personas. Surf Shacks takes a deeper look at surfers' homes and artistic habits. Glimpses of record collections, 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.
