I Love the Seaside is created by a small team of ocean-loving professionals – writers, photographers and designers; passionate about travelling and surfing.
After years of extensive travels and trips along the coastline of southwest Europe, discovering and meeting so many nice, sympathetic and heartwarming people, hardworking entrepreneurs and artists, with surprising initiatives and beautiful places; they felt the urge to connect you, travellers and surfers, with like-minded people and locals, and inspire you to explore more.
‘I Love the Seaside, the surf and travel guide to Southern Europe‘ is the first travel guide for surfers to France, Spain and Portugal; from the empty bays of Brittany to the sunny beaches of Andalusia and everything in between. You’ll find beautiful photography, info on surf spots, a clear view of the backdrop, places you love to hang out, eat and sleep, fine shops, to dos and to sees, local food facts, tips to stay fit and healthy, and stories of seaside people. The guide provides all your seaside needs and more.

Geert-Jan Middelkoop – Production, concept and distribution. Able to do his procurement and consultancy work from the campervan. When he’s not on a surf trip, he’s planning one.

After a successful crowdfunding campaign the book is here ready to be ordered. So if there is a book you should get I guess this is one of them.
It’s an internationally oriented guide, aimed at the growing number of seaside explorers, and their families and friends. We love to be independent, free to choose and share the lifestyle of acting honestly, purely and with the heart. Staying true to this, we love to support the small and local businesses. That’s why we chose to do everything by ourselves; from collecting and connecting, to printing and publishing.
So well done Folks :-)…
