Brief Description:

The Stormrider Guide Europe – Atlantic Islands

Includes – Iceland & Scandinavia, Ireland, Wales, England, Scotland, Azores & Madeira and Canary Isles


Fully revised and detailed information covering The Surf, Ocean Environment and Surf Culture on a country by country basis. The Surf outlines where to go and when to go and demystifies the Atlantic Islands from Iceland to the Canaries. Ocean Environment deals with pollution, erosion, access and hazards, while Surf Culture illuminates the surf scene including history, surf media, contests and localism. The indispensable travelling information is concise plus there’s links to all the latest oceanographic and swell forecasting resources.

The Atlantic Islands are accurately mapped in detail, showing where to find the main surfing breaks. Each surf break report outlines how and where the waves break, quality, consistency and the general vibe. The unique Stormrider symbols reveal optimum wind, tide, swell size and direction, as well as wave type and bottom contour. Crowds, hazards, dangerous sea-life, pollution, access and environmental problems are also noted.

Stunning images in crisp colour from the cream of the world’s surf photographers add that extra dimension that makes The Stormrider Guide Europe – Atlantic Islands the most detailed surf guide money can buy.
