About this title

Synopsis:

"Cold-water surfing, the most remote surf spots, spectacular photography, illustrations, and custom boards: Surf Odyssey documents the modern cult of surfing as its own subculture and way of life.
There’s much more to surfing than palm trees and beach boy clichés. People surf not only in Hawaii, but also in Norway, South Korea, and India. Surf Odyssey is a book about the world of surfing today and those that live in it. This community is made up of the surfers themselves as well as surf photographers and board builders who are also spreading its distinctive spirit into other creative fields. Comparable to the new outdoor movement, today’s surfing is about an attitude toward life, a lust for adventure, and a love of nature that one can only find far away from established spots. Surf Odyssey presents this scene’s places, people, stories, and brands. Its stunning photography is sure to inspire many further surfing exploits."

Review:

"A handsome coffee-table book for the dad who surfs or wishes he did."

-The New York Times



"For an easy trip to the beach . . . pick up this striking visual homage to surfing. Every page transports you to a world where all that matters is the wave. From a thundering 40-footer off the coast of Tasmania to the Zenlike craft of building a board, the photography captures the terrifying grandeur of the ocean, with smart captions that get to the heart of the sport’s very personal appeal."
