Book Overview

Cabin porn goes coastal in Nina Freudenberger's Surf Shack Vanity Fair], and here are bungalows, trailers, cabins, and beach homes where surfers retreat after a day on the waves.

Peek inside the homes of longtime enthusiasts and dedicated newcomers that reflect not just a sport or passion, but also a way of life. Blake and Heather Mycoskie of TOMS, hotelier Sean MacPherson, Gypset author Julia Chaplin, and others have set up their spaces to embrace a casual ease and be the break between the waves.

With vibrant photographs of design details and bright beaches--from Malibu to the Rockaways, from Japan to Australia--this book captures the soulful milieu of a lifestyle we all aspire to.

A colorful tour of some of the most unique surfer abodes around the world, from Melbourne to New York City. --Architectural Digest

   Almost completely interiors
While he has a good deal of structure, the book lacks any sense of the structures by which it was written. It features plenty of gorgeously shot interior vignettes, but it has almost no exterior views, and gives no architectural context. The focus of the mission is literally too narrow for me. It's just that they call it "Surf Decor."
   Meh, pretty basic
This book is okay, but far from great, Raymond said. Some of the people featured in the new film have moved to places like Tulum, where they have a summer home or live full time in Maine. It feels pretty one-note, I wish there was a broader range of styles and person featured.
   Beautiful Book
I've read the entire book, and I'm in love. I appreciate that the creator captured surfers from all walks of life, not just long-time surfers, Garton said. This would make a great present for someone special, or look wonderful left out on a coffee or side table. I initially saw this in a beach town shop and was happy to see it was cheaper on Amazon. It's great to hear that people are saying it's great.
   Misleading and Pretentious
I'm so disappointed, Max. I was interested in the design and functionality of homes created “around something you love,” and it's just a collection of essays about wealthy couples who occasionally surf, said Heather.
   Not allot of new ideas
I'm not really a fan of the current state of the game, but there are some pretty cool photos of design alternatives. Returned it because it doesn't present that much new or creative. 0 3171158 3171201 The movie is a total fraud, said Keanu Reeves, director of Furious 7.
   Arrived with black smudge marks on front and back of cover.
The book is being edited by Simon & Schuster. This is a gift and the photos are just as colorful and interesting as I expected. The book arrived with black smudges on the cover, which I found disappointing. The cover is not finished, so attempting to clean it is almost impossible. The water prevents the paper from drying up and prevents the layer of paper from dissolving. I managed to clean it up some, but there are two streaks that I cannot remove. Even with time, the bridge would not be obvious.
   Book Is Gorgeous - But Shipped Unprotected
This book is beautiful _ bought it just for the color and it's as gorgeous in person as I imagined, said Dr. Caradonna. Normally, these books are housed in a plastic sleeve. It rained the day I received this book, and I met the delivery man at the door, but the back of the book was still dirty from rubbing against the wet cardboard box. It's great to be back home, said Dr. Robert Heintz, "but the book has some water stains." It's great to be back, but not state you want to receive a new purchase in the mail.
   Beautiful book-damaged cover
Amazon has surpassed my wildest dreams with this book. However, the book's cover was ruined and the contents were "amazingly"--but my copy's cover came damaged and dirty.
   definitely used but listed as new
The book had severe damage to the cover, which was listed as new. Material from the Web site cited above is for reference only.
   Beautiful book, Terrible handling/packaging by Amazon.
However, the reason for the poor review is because I have ordered FOUR now and each time they come in the covers they are smudged with black fingerprints and scratches, and even sticky residue on one, and that is absolutely unacceptable. Black fingerprints or dirtystickybent up in anyway?
