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."

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"
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
