Surfer magazine meets The New Bohemians in a design book of the coolest spaces that surfers call home. Domino magazine contributor Nina Freudenberger and former domino photographer Brittany Ambridge cover 20 aspirational bungalows, coastal cabins, boat houses, and hideaways in California, Montauk, Baja, Australia, and more.
With their sense of adventure, zen attitude, and, for many, life near the beach, surfers enjoy a lifestyle we all want. Surf Shack profiles rooms that break down the barriers between the indoors and outdoors and include plenty of communal hangout spaces to accommodate friends. Featured surfers include a mix of professionals and serious hobbyists, including Sean MacPherson (whose father starred in Endless Summer and mother was a surf champion), pro longboarder Kassia Meador, surfboard shaper Chris Christenson, and Tom's founder Blake Mycoskie. Lush lifestyle photography shows just how sophisticated and inviting these homes are with personal accents (like handmade surf boards, cactus gardens, or Mexican blankets) juxtaposed with dreamy architectural details (outdoor showers, plunge pools, and skylights).
