A dream tour around the planet’s best 80 waves… Yeah, you got us. We know the idea of ‘the best’ anything is a subjective one and while there can never be one definitive list of the best waves, we tried to get as close as possible by condensing the perspective of the wider surf community.
Through our contacts, we spoke to everyone from emerging talents to surf legends as well as fellow surf writers, editors, photographers and industry bigwigs from around the globe to get their take on the best waves out there and what makes them so good.
Some are waves that defined an era or a year, a few are forgotten treasures, while others are destined to become future classics. Draw up a list of your own top 10 waves and then get out there and ride them. This is the golden age of the surf trip. Your dream wave is a lot closer than you think.
In 320 pages, ‘Surfing the World‘ combines in-depth, accurate surf information, analysis of the waves and how they work, where they fit in terms of geography, history and culture, unearthing those personalities who have taken on and pioneered the breaks, telling tales of exploration and adventure accompanied by beautiful photography from surfing’s leading lensmen.
From ideation though development of the concept, research, writing, commissioning photography to guiding advertising and securing brand partnerships, we were involved in the whole process through to delivery.
