As transient and nomadic as surfers may be, they still need a home base in which to rest their salty heads come nighttime. And much like their style, preference of board, and local surf spot, the dwellings in which these wave-riders reside bear a close resemblance to their personalities. Surf Shacks, a compilation of different surfer’s homes from coastlines across the world works to document these unique homes and the salty dogs who occupy them.
The eclectic nature of these little homes range from city apartments to hillside wooden cabins nestled in Northern California’s rugged coastline. Inside, surfboards from year’s past line the walls, old vinyl collections are scattered about, backyard gardens lush with healthy eats, and even some art studios can be found here. It’s chalk full of interviews and photo essays from the sport’s most unique personalities. From the CEO of the Surfrider Foundation in Japan to movers and shapers throughout the industry living in converted buses, this anthology will inspire you to break away from the McMansion and live a more examined and creative life.
