The surfing lifestyle is avowedly anti-materialistic, but 'Surf Shacks' shows that surfers from around the world can still have captivating abodes. The full-color photography book captures images of surfers' homes in detail, letting people see how these full-time wave-chasers live their lives away from the ocean.
Surf Shacks is a compilation book, with images taken from various posts on Indoek, a popular surf culture blog. Though the name might make it sound as though the homes are all tropical huts, one of Surf Shack's most interesting aspects is its diversity. There certainly are rainforest lean-tos, but the pages are also interspersed with everything from rural cabins to converted vans to city apartments. Surfing may have a synchronous ideology, but surfers still live their lives the way they want.
