Wavefinder UK & Ireland: Latest Edition Out Now

Size Matters
The 3rd Edition of Wavefinder UK & Ireland is out now. It does actually fit in your back pocket as they claim. I managed to shove a mobile, three biros and a Sony MiniDV tape in their too, which felt a bit weird. It’s definitely worth considering, for its size alone. If you haven’t already had a butchers, check out the details below.

The craic:

The most comprehensive guide to the surfing beaches of the UK and Ireland is now available in a new, full colour, third edition.

Roughly the size of an iPhone, Wavefinder UK & Ireland may be small but it crams in a huge amount of detail into the 312 pages – a combination which has seen the title selling 30,000 copies worldwide to date.

The book combines inspirational photography with a wealth of practical information about where and when to surf. More than 450 individual surf spots are described, backed up by over 300 Surfer’s Eye™ maps which give a visual overview of each beach.

Edited by Wavefinder-in-chief Larry Blair, the book draws together the experience of over 100 contributors from throughout the UK and Ireland – each selected for their specialist knowledge of their local area.

The content is organised geographically, with listings broken down into countries, then regions, with each spot featuring a written description and Surfer’s Eye™ map. A series of icons give information on the best tide, swell and wind conditions.

Stunning full-colour images are drawn from the ranks of the UK’s hardy surfing photographers, including: Tony Plant, Peter Adams, Jordan Weeks and Jim Michell.

The book is on sale throughout the UK and Ireland from all major bookstores and surf shops, and direct from where section PDF downloads are also available.
