Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By popular demand, "The Beast" is back. In response to customer feedback and general confusion, "The Stormrider Surf Guide Europe" is back in one huge, mind-blowing book. Much like a traditional bible, it seems surfers want both testaments in one place, so "The Continent and Atlantic Islands" books have been combined into 400 pages of pure surf stoke. This book is thick enough to stop a shotgun blast at point blank range, so it's R.I.P. for the box set as this is the 4th coming of "The Stormrider Surf Guide Europe"."The Stormrider Guide Europe" (978-0-9539840-7-7) includes - Iceland and Scandinavia, Ireland, Wales, England, Scotland, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Morocco, Canary Islands, Madeira and Azores.Fully revised and detailed information covering "The Surf", "Ocean Environment" and "Surf Culture" on a country by country basis. The "Surf" outlines where to go and when to go and demystifies the entire European coastline. "Ocean Environment" deals with pollution, erosion, access and hazards, while "Surf Culture" illuminates the surf scene including history, surf media, contests and localism. The indispensable travelling information is concise plus there's links to all the latest oceanographic and swell forecasting resources.The entire coastline is accurately mapped in detail, showing where to find the main surfing breaks. Each surf break report outlines how and where the waves break, quality, consistency and the general vibe. The unique Stormrider symbols reveal optimum wind, tide, swell size and direction, as well as wave type and bottom contour. Crowds, hazards, dangerous sea-life, pollution, access and environmental problems are also noted.A picture tells a thousand words so there are hundreds of the best photos of European surf ever compiled. Stunning images in crisp colour from the cream of the world's surf photographers and that extra dimension that makes "The Stormrider Guide Europe" the most detailed surf guide money can buy.
