Product description


A colorful tour of some of the most unique surfer abodes around the world. --Architectural Digest

A good look at not only a number of these vastly different abodes but also a quick glimpse into the particular and even peculiar lives that are lived there. --Gerry Lopez, renowned surfer, innovator, and author of Surf is Where You Find It

Cabin porn goes coastal in Nina Freudenberger's Surf Shack" --Vanity Fair

One of the prettiest design and decor books I've viewed in some time. There's a uniqueness and authentic unstyled beauty to Surf Shack that I could really relate to and the photography is beautiful. --Victoria Smith, SF Girl by Bay

Some of the coolest 'shacks' on the planet. --Surf Collective NYC

It is [the surfing] lifestyle--and the home decor choices driven by it--that inspired interior designer Nina Freudenberger's new book. --Vogue

This book perfectly shows the wildly varying sanctuaries of damp, sandy tribesmen, and where they return for brief comfort. --Fletcher Chouinard, shaper/designer

Even if you don't own a surfboard, there's so much to learn from this gorgeous book about living a creative, authentic life. --Emily Henderson, author of the New York Times best seller Styled

These laid-back coastal bedrooms illustrate how to bring effortlessly cool style into any sleeping space.

This book highlights many of the aspects that make surfing such a compelling pursuit--with captivating photographs of homes that reflect the owners' authentic love of wave riding and a deep respect for nature. --Paul Speaker, CEO, The World Surf League

For me, the home is never about decoration, it's about personal expression and creating a foundation for an active life, which is exactly what Nina has captured here. This book gives me a ton of ideas! --Maxwell Ryan, author of Apartment Therapy Complete and Happy Home

Surf Shack pulled at my heartstrings. While I'm not a surfer, I grew up on the coast and in the water. The homes in this book speak to that love and not only inspire you to reimagine your decor, but how to live. You'll want to return to this book time and again. --Rebecca Atwood, author of Living with Pattern

A stunning new book. --MyDomaine

This book perfectly captures the dreamy living of California surf culture and casual beach-chic interiors. --Helene Henderson, chef-owner and author of Malibu Farm Cookbook

By Jessica on 25 May 2021
Beautiful book however the book arrived damaged. Looks as if it has been dropped and thrown around. Spine and corners are crushed in multiple places along with scuff marks to spine. Disappointing.
