      "When I moved from New York City to Venice, California, in 2012 I never expected the getting-to-work part of my day to look quite so different. All of a sudden everything I ever pictured a morning commute to be was turned inside out -- it was untucked and wearing flip-flops... As I met more people on the West Coast, hung out in their homes, and had dinner with their families, I discovered a lot of them were surfers. And what's more, surfing wasn't a recreational activity they happen to enjoy; it was more of a calling, a way of life that washed through every other aspect of their world. These folks were happy, they were relaxed, and their homes echoed those traits. Clearly they are doing something right in life -- and I wanted to get to the how and the why of it all."

      Featuring a diverse group of twenty-six artists, designers and creatives whose love of life intersects with their love of the water, take a gorgeous visual ride with interior designer Nina Freudenberger and writer Heather Summerville as they give you an authentic glimpse into the storied world of surfers and surf culture.

      Brought to life by photographer Brittany Ambridge with 250+ captivating images, discover the lifestyle, architecture and interior décor of locales ranging from a coastal cabin in Bells Beach, Australia and a mountain home in Hayama, Japan, to a desert hideaway in Ojai, California and a Nordic A-frame in Montauk, New York.

      Smart, stylish and bursting with soulful inspiration, Surf Shack is a delightful addition to any coffee table and makes a great gift for design aficionados, surfers, or the surf curious alike.

      “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 bestseller Styled
