The Surf and Travel Guide

After a very successful crowdfundcampaign we proudly present the I Love the Seaside surf & travel guide to southwest Europe.

‘I Love the Seaside, the surf and travel guide to Southern Europe‘ is the first travel guide for surfers to France, Spain and Portugal;

from the empty bays of Brittany to the sunny beaches of Andalusia and everything in between.

You’ll find beautiful photography, info on surf spots, a clear view of the backdrop, places you love to hang out, eat and sleep,

fine shops, to dos and to sees, local food facts, tips to stay fit and healthy, and stories of seaside people.

The guide provides all your seaside needs and more.
