Despite the popular myth, surfers are not always at the ocean on their boards. As with most humans, they too have a place they call home, be it a mansion, apartment, or car. For 2017 the surf-centric blog Indoek has teamed up with publisher Die Gestalten Verlag to create “Surf Shacks: An Eclectic Compilation of Creative Surfer’s Homes from Coast to Coast and Overseas” ($60) to celebrate the surfing lifestyle.

Surfers tend to be a creative and innovative community and this book takes a look into their lives off the waves. It strolls through their gardens, their lawns, their record collections, and their lives. “Surf Shacks” tells the stories of how these people live and develop, and how riding the waves on surf boards helps celebrate that uniqueness of spirit through photographs, anecdotes, interviews, and illustrations.

This gorgeous coffee table book is hardbound and runs to 288 pages, is 9 1/2″ x 12″, and is a great conversation piece. Inside you will learn more than surfing and surfers, you will find a hint of what makes extraordinary people out of those who get out and grab life as it comes. [via]
