"Six years of travel, searching, cold water surfing & adventure in one photographic travelogue. Surfer Ian Battrick and photographer Tim Nunn have spent months in some of the wilder places in the Northern Hemisphere and this is their story of times where their paths crossed in 200 pages of rich photography. From dealing with bears in the wilderness of Canada to volcanic eruptions in Iceland, driving for days in Norway to surfing heavy slabs in Scotland, this book is a window into some of the less explored corners of the surfing world. It is a book designed to inspire you to break free of the confines of everyday life and have your own adventure. To get out and see the planet for the incredible place its is, whether that be for a weekend, a year or a lifetime."
Over 200 pages, 400+ photos packed into one hardback book, along with some unique tales from off the beaten track around some of the world's remotest coastlines in Iceland, Norway, Canada and Scotland.
"Are you the solo-wanderer type, like Ian Battrick? The kind whose companions on the road are a small tent, a mosquito net or a 6mm wetsuit, an iPod and a well loved quiver of boards? You spend as little as possible and stay for as long as you can. You make plenty of friends out there - fellow travellers and friendly natives - but you're essentially a free radical, beholden to no one, bound to no place or schedule. Malaria, guns, bears - whatever.
Wandering the world in search of hollow waves is Ian's mission. He's been doing it for years and he's stored up gigabytes of great adventures in his memory banks. But he wont brag about them. In fact, it's hard to get Ian to spill the beans on any of his surf exploits but we try, and learn plenty in the process."
