After years of being in awe of his globetrotting Grandma Pippa’s fantastic surf and sail adventures, Hubi is hitting the road for an expedition of his own! Join him and experience the holistic combination of facts, friendships and phenomena that surround what he loves to do most — surf!
What’s it like to ride a murky tidal bore up the Amazon? What is a tidal bore? How do surfers prepare for and tackle the biggest waves on Earth? How do submarine canyons and seamounts make big waves possible? Is Skeleton Bay a place of nightmares — or dreams come true? Where is Equatorial Guinea? What is a red colobus? Find the answers to these questions and heaps more in Hubi’s Surf Atlas – part 1. Like any worthy atlas, this book is substantial in size, density and contains a number of secrets to be uncovered over time. It centers on a diverse selection of 15 waves across all seven continents, some legendary, others obscure. Enchanting wave, wildlife and travel illustrations, 200+ cool facts, maps and infographics explain the planet and some of the natural processes that make waves possible. These elements, together with an all-time surf glossary, are sure to inspire junior shredders to get out and soak up their planet wherever they live!
The rich vocabulary, playful language and abundance of pictures and context clues make Hubi’s Surf Atlas perfectly suited for curious beginner and intermediate readers, English language learners, early teens and anyone just wanting to have a bit of fun.
