The Culture of Wave Riding
There's much more to surfing than palm trees and beach boy cliches. Beyond mainstream surfing lies an uncharted sea of creativity, community, and independence that celebrates the ture nature of surfing. The Gestalten book Surf Odyssey depicts this contemporary surf culture: the adrenaline rush of cold-water surfing, the daunting treks through the terrain of Africa balanced by the welcoming Tempple of Enthusiasm in Bali, the quest to find nature in its purest form, and the reward of finding oneself. Stunning images from pioneering outdoor photographers and poignant portraits of movers and shakers within the scene narrate a tale of wave-riding that steps away from social norms and into aquatic swells of adventure.
