"Swell is a beautiful and interesting take on our fascination with waves.... Make room on your coffee table--this book is worthy of long-term display." -- Transworld Surf
"Swell: A Year of Waves is not only a gorgeously photographed guide to the best waves in the world but a lucid introduction to the science behind them.... Slater's plain-spoken prose shows deep respect for the elements, as do photographs that, at their best, seem to freeze the full power of the sea for study. Flipping the pages slowly, inspecting one wave after another, the reader can almost hear them splash against a nearby shore." -- The Wall Street Journal
"Swell: A Year of Waves offers more than your typical coffee-table photo book as Slater 'puts a human face' on the world's most recognized wave machines across four different ocean zones." -- Eastern Surf
