The 384-page surf & travel guide to northwest Europe, from Lofoten, Norway to the north of France and everything in between.
I Love the Seaside bring you another surf and travel guide: this time a printed 384-page to Northwest Europe (English language).
From don’t-forget-to-breathe-beautiful Lofoten, in the north of Norway, we surf our way down the west coast then explore the shores of Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland and Belgium, all the way to Normandy, in the north of France.
I Love the Seaside (that’s us) are a team of surfing travellers/travelling surfers who explore seaside spots, collect and collate all the best bits, and publish them so you can be inspired to explore too. We connect travellers, surfers and locals by sharing our favourite surf spots, places to hang out, and things to do.
Last year (with your help and a successful crowdfund campaign!) we published our first surf and travel guide, which introduced you to the beautiful people and places along the coastlines of southwest Europe.
We got so much positive feedback from local people and businesses, and of course from you: the people who are travelling with our guide… which gave us the tremendous energy we need to continue this Seaside adventure.
And we’re not done yet with Europe!
There’s much more beauty to explore, to see, to share! There’s the North Sea with its stoked surfers. The pristine bays and vast landscape of Scandinavia. The welcoming warmth of the coldwater people.
Having travelled and surfed and slept, eaten and explored and met a whole lot of lovely local people in the north, we’re right now, as you read this, working on and fine-tuning yet another inspiring surf and travel guide: the I Love the Seaside Surf & Travel Guide to Northwest Europe.
We’re creating it with the help of the locals we met along the way and some very talented photographers, a filmer and our co-writer too, so of course, as with our first book, the Northwest Europe guide will be filled with great places to eat, drink, hang out, things to do besides surfing, people to meet, seaside locals, photos of stunning scenery, and loads of inspiration to take with you on your travels to the north.
What's included in the guide?
- Beautiful and inspiring photos
- Detailed and clear descriptions of surf breaks for all levels

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’ve chosen to do everything by ourselves; from collecting and connecting, to printing and publishing.
The I Love the Seaside Surf & Travel Guides are created by ocean-loving people for ocean-loving people, so you get our honest-to-goodness genuine bonafide recommendations only.
