10 surf books to keep you stoked during winter months

We officially entered British daylight savings time today, meaning it now gets dark at 5.30pm and the nights will close in until the end of December. Unfortunately this means less time in the water, but on the bright side it means more time for other activities such as reading.

The list below is a small selection of some of the fiction and non-fiction novels/biographies that I have bought over the few years (and by no means exhaustive). So if you find yourself with a spare few moments then get your head into one of the books on the list below.

If you’ve got any suggestions then please feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Does Elsenham library know that you’ve taken out their entire stock of surf literature? 😉

    1. Not yet! I’m hoping I’ll be out of the country by the time they notice 🙂
