Surfers’ Blood by Patrick Trefz

This superb anthology represents Patrick Trefz's two decades of documenting surf culture across the globe. Trefz was a staff photographer at Surfer Magazine, but Surfers’ Blood explores the less commercial, wilder, more subtle beauty of the ocean.

While there are certainly some incredible shots of surfing, some of the most amazing shots are of shipwrecks lying beached on the sand, vans loaded up twenty high with boards and a cave at Papa Tangarroa, cited as 'a bad place to lose your board'.

This book has energy and depth that is almost impossible to place into words. A truly beautiful volume of photographs that captures visibly the essence of the ocean and all who love it.
