‘Surf Shacks’ by Indoek | A glimpse inside the homes of creative surfers
We’ve been pretty big on covering Indoek’s ‘Surf Shacks‘ series that they run on their website. Now they have made the lovely decision to move it into print. That’s right, a photographic glimpse into how creative surfers live could be sitting on your coffee table right now!
“One of the blog’s shining stars is its Surf Shack series, which has taken Titone and Thompson into countless homes of surfers who have welcomed them into their eclectic private domains, shown them their quirky treasures from their travels, and given them a peek into their lives. Titone explains, “We wanted to celebrate surfers who are in the creative industry—designers, architects, photographers, artists—the folks who may or may not be professional surfers, but who have creative professions and live their lives through that spirit. That’s us. We find that interesting.””
About This Book
Many abodes can fall under the label of surf shack: New York City apartments, cabins nestled next to national parks, or tiny Hawaiian huts. Surfing communities are overflowing with creativity, innovation, and rich personas. Surf Shacks takes a deeper look at surfers’ homes and artistic habits. Glimpses of record collections, strolls through backyard gardens, or a peek into a painter’s studio provide insight into surfers’ lives both on and off shore. From the remote Hawaiian nook of filmmaker Jess Bianchi to the woodsy Japanese paradise that the former CEO of Surfrider Foundation in Japan, Hiromi Masubara, calls home to the converted bus that Ryan Lovelace claims as his domicile and his transport, every space has a unique tale. The moments that these vibrant personalities spend away from the swell and the froth are both captivating and nuanced.
Through anecdotes and photographs, illustrations and conversations, Surf Shacks reveals a more personal side to surfing and its eclectic cast of characters.
