A surfer can never leave the sea behind. They come to coasts all across the world, from homes in rural communities to the largest cities. The creative surf community has two homes, the sea and the land – and it is these second homes that Surf Shacks showcases. An illustrated guide to the unique places that surfers lives, you get a window into their world both on and off shore.

The 288 pages are overflowing with life and personality, from tiny Hawaiian huts to NYC apartments. Published by Inodek, the book celebrates surfers from every corner, with abodes that reverberate with the crashing waves and rolling tides of the ever-present sea.
