Travel Book Reviews Surf Books

While we already have a post on our favorite books to take on a surf trip, those aren’t necessarily about surfing.

In fact, on a surf trip, I tend to grab a book about something other than surfing – perhaps sailing, fishing, or something that dives into the culture of the place I’m visiting.

But at home, dreaming about surfing, these are some go to books actually about surfing – the kind of books that take you away to places and waves that you can only dream about.

As always, I try not to say best or greatest or put things in any kind of ranking order.

It’s just a list of what we think are some of the best surfing books, hopefully a little inspiration for your next surf read.
