  • Never would have thought the thing could be that thick. And all so well organized - more info in a book is not possible! (Bernd Flessner, 10 times German master)
  • Just back from Sardinia - brought your guide with me and it was invaluable! It really is the best resource for wind sports that I've ever seen, I'll be buying it as Christmas presents for all my mates who windsurf. (Daniel Macaulay, UK)
  • Just received The Guide on time before I go for a trip to Portugal. Thank you, it is awesome! (David Eybert-Berard, France)
  • The bible has arrived! The EUROPE GUIDE was more than ingenious; it gave us Portugal, Spain, Brittany, Normandy, Ireland, Denmark, Baltic Sea, Southern France, Sardinia and Greece, and a camping surfari without it is unimaginable! Early today the WORLD GUIDE arrived... first I checked out the regions that I've travelled, e.g. Western Australia, Sydney, Cape Town, Red Sea, Dom. Rep, and Barbados... then flipped the pages to destinations like California, Hawaii, South Seas...it's almost a shame that our Cape Town trip is already booked, the new guide makes you extremely curious about new destinations. Thanks to the Stoked Team for 4 years of work on this guide! (Bodo Surfer, Duesseldorf)
  • The WORLD GUIDE is absolutely superb (the dogs bollocks, if you know what I mean!), it couldn't be better (Claudio Koch, G 543)
