Wave watchers around the world know that no two waves are the same. Yet each and every wave that rises, peaks, and crashes onto the beach is generated by a much larger force originating thousands of miles away. Surf journalist team Evan Slater and Peter Taras capture the essence of waves and the swells that produce them in this breathtaking collection of wave photography. Slater characterizes four distinct swells from different corners of the globe and traces their journeys throughout the year from storm to seashore. His reflective, informative essays amplify these powerful images of hundreds of waves frozen in time, beautiful, simple, universal, yet wholly unique-and the best thing to watch on the planet.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Swell: A Year of Waves offers more than your typical coffee-table photo book as Slater 'puts a human face' on the world's most recognized wave machines across four different ocean zones." -- Eastern Surf
"Every day global swells journey thousands of miles to find our favorite shores and fall over.... In this stunning coffee table book Swell: A Year of Waves, Evan Slater and Peter Taras document the journey. Using four seasonal swell patterns, Evan and Peter illustrate this race, from a storm's first breath of wind to a wave's arrival on shore, where we wait in the lineup, excited to usher them across the finish line." -- Surfing
"Swell is a beautiful and interesting take on our fascination with waves.... Make room on your coffee table--this book is worthy of long-term display." -- Transworld Surf
"Swell: A Year of Waves is not only a gorgeously photographed guide to the best waves in the world but a lucid introduction to the science behind them.... Slater's plain-spoken prose shows deep respect for the elements, as do photographs that, at their best, seem to freeze the full power of the sea for study. Flipping the pages slowly, inspecting one wave after another, the reader can almost hear them splash against a nearby shore." -- The Wall Street Journal
