From big city apartments to huts on the beach, marvel at the beautiful homes of the surf community's finest; where they head to after catching the best waves of the day.
From big city apartments to huts on the beach, these beautiful homes provide a haven for surfers after a long day of catching waves.
While most of us are stuck staring at computer screens for hours on end, the desire to give everything up and lead a carefree life in touch with nature can often feel overbearing.
And while some of us might choose a secluded cabin in the woods, most would prefer to do exactly like Matt Titone and turn our eyes to the water.
But Surf Shacks – a new book from Gestalten – is not about running away; it’s about shining a light on the carefully constructed intimate spaces of different people who shape their lives around a passion for surfing.
The spaces photographed belong to people from all walks of life. They are wanderlust inspiring not for their specific architectural majesty, but for their ability to take these surfers’ immaterial experiences of freedom and turn them into a sanctuary.
From New York City apartments to tropical bungalows, rural cottages in the hills, cabin hideaways and surf vans on the beach, these are the places surfers from all corners of the globe call home.
