About the Author:

Chris Nelson is one of Europe's leading surf travel writers, with his co-author Demi Taylor (and their combined surf travel experience of over 30 years) they have written five books on surfing. Chris started surfing in the mid-eighties on the frigid reefs of England's northeast coast. He founded and edited Asylum and Freeride, two of the UK's most influential boardsports magazines. Having dreamt up the idea of Surfing Europe on a long road trip, Chris and Demi packed up their desk jobs, packed up their van and undertook a year of intensive on-the-road research - surfing, exploring and documenting the whole of Europe's Atlantic coastline. The resulting groundbreaking first edition was published by Footprint in 2004 to critical acclaim. Chris and Demi have co-authored the best-selling Surfing Britain & Ireland and Surfing the World. Demi Taylor has co-authored five surf titles for Footprint, including the bestselling Surfing Britain & Ireland, Surfing Europe and Surfing the World, along with her co-author Chris Nelson they 30 years combined surf travel experience and are two of Europe's leading surf travel writers. Demi caught her first wave in 1992 and has been hooked ever since. Before becoming established as a freelance photojournalist she managed the UK communications for the world's largest surf brand. Surfing Europe was dreamt up on a long road trip after which Demi and Chris packed in their day jobs and packed up their van, resulting in the groundbreaking first edition being published in 2004. Since then Demi has turned her attentions to all adventure sports with her new title to be published this June, expect good, clean, green fun with Adventure Britain.

Review:

"" There is plenty of information on each spot and also plenty of good colour photos throughout. The surfers tales give a good insight into the atmosphere of local surfers and a board guide shows what the guys that know their waves are riding. All in all a very useful guide laid out really well. Wavelength "" NEW and in our opinion the best guide to surfing yet produced. A1 Surfshop On Surfing Britain "" The same great balance of hard yards searching without betraying the secret spots. Stranger Magazine "" World class photography Snowboardclub.co.uk"
