WAVEFINDER is a leading publisher of action sports travel guides and technique manuals, specialising in surf, snow and bike sports. When we started back in 2001 our focus was on producing the ultimate surf guides, providing convenient pocket sized books with easy to use concise information to help surfers find the best waves. The guides were so successful that we decided to do the same for skiers and snowboarders and so in 2005 we published our first ski guide. We now publish several titles under the Wavefinder and Snowfinder names covering over 2,700 surf spots on 4 continents and 80 ski resorts throughout Europe & North America.
Along with our series of travel guide books, we also publish how-to books as part of our “Manual” series. These publications feature insights, tips & tricks straight from the top professionals in each sport, combined with exhilarating photography.
