The Breitling Book of Surfing

An illustrated journey through modern surf culture, led by the international surfers and communities that define its inclusive and passionate nature.



Epic Photography brings to life the stories of a unique group of global communities, and the surfers who represent them. Told in their own words, some of the world's most exciting professional and freestyle surfers introduce - at different points in their careers - the influential figures, places and waves that shaped their lives and their surfing.

From the rugged and unforgiving west coast of Ireland to the famous beaches of Oahu, Hawaii, with stops on six continents along the way, Breitling offers a unique and unexpected window into the modern surfing experience.

The sport's inclusive spirit is what inspired the iconic watch brand - champion of surf culture and maker of timepieces for ocean activities since 1957 - to highlight the broader surfing community with a book dedicated to the sport's diverse characters, unexpected outposts and collective culture.

Based on interviews with surfers about the local communities they call home, The Breitling Book of Surfing is as much an in-depth travelogue as it is a beautiful photo book. Intended for long-term surfing enthusiasts and newcomers alike, it explores the shared values and passions that shape this diverse and dynamic global community connected by the ocean.
