Extreme Surf (reduced format): Illustrated edition

By Benjamin Marcus

A thrilling quest to find and surf the biggest, heaviest, fastest and gnarliest wave. Extreme Surf shows the amazing extremes surfers will go to to find the ultimate wave.

Imagine paddling along, just ahead of a wave that has risen to a monstrous 70 ft – a thousand tons of moving liquid arching over your head whilst you accelerate up to 55 mph, then fly through the arc of rushing water in a race to pull clear before it collapses upon you.

‘Extreme surf’ is a tribute to the adrenalin rush of catching a big wave. A fascinating journey through the world’s most awe-inspiring surfing locations, from Teahupoo, Tahiti to Mavericks, North California, it describes one of the currently most loved, yet dangerous sports. Beginning with a history of the sport’s evolution, the book takes us to the most remote, most popular, and most dangerous surfing spots. From the longest, fastest, coldest and warmest waves to the deadliest waters, this book will thrill with its images and text.

‘Extreme Surf’ is the 4th title in the successful ‘Extreme’ sport series (‘Extreme Golf 04’; ‘Extreme Sail 06’, ‘Extreme Running 07’.) This is mini-edition.
