Each wave is created by specific wind and water conditions and marches in its own way towards the shore.

In their book, Swell, the two of them identify four types of swells, according to the specific features of the waves in several places of the planet, like moods, eccentricities and more. The essence of the waves is captured in amazing photos and informative essays that make Swell a must have book for all watermen.
