Surf the world with Hubi; it’s magical!
I bought this book as a baby shower gift. Dad is an avid surfer so what better gift for the new little surfer boy. Dad can take baby around the world on surf adventures with Hubi and share fun and useful facts. The bright colors and artistry will surely captivate.

Great for surfers and teaching kids about geography!
Hang ten with Hubi as he explores the most amazing surf spots around the world! In Hubi's Surf Atlas: Part 1 by Wiilder World this book follows Hubi, an ad id surfer, on a trip around the world to visit the best surf spots. The trip is funded by his Grandma Pippanand the book is a scrapbook of Hubi's adventures at each destination along with fun facts and information about each region. You get really good illustrations in this book that are extremely eye-catching and helps the feel that you are looking at a scrapbook Hubi made.

There is so much to be impressed by when reading this book. It is labeled as a children's travel book, and you can use it that way, but I think it Is a great way to teach kids about geography. Each destination in the scrapbook has information about climate and wildlife in the location. This book can also be used by surfers because it gives you all the information you need including: what to pack, type of boards to bring, length of wave ride, wave size, hazards, and climate. In the back of the book is a page for the reader to make their scrapbook in Hubi's style. The page can be printed out so you can make a scrapbook of your own! There is a lot of terminology in this book that some readers will need to look up, but thankfully there is a glossary in other back for words presented in blue in the text to help you learn these words and surf terms. This book is the first in a series and I am looking forward to the next edition. There are so many places Hubi visited in this book (15 locations), I can't imagine where we will go next. I recommend reading this book by a body of water with a glass of Hawaiian punch to feel like you are joining Hubi on his adventures! Surf's up!

Very accurate surfing intro with cultural and ecological aspects that my kids loved
My kids are 4 and 6 years old and really enjoyed this book. I would categorize this a mixture of storybook, travel book and reference book (think Lonely Planet Kids). The book describes the adventures of a boy named Hubi who travels the world to surf.

The book illustrations are clever and clean and the maps are well drawn and detailed. The book explains the sport of surfing including board types, safety, types of surf, etc., while simultaneously giving a cultural and ecological summary of various surf spots around the world. For each surf spot there were highlights that include types of waves, skills needed to surf there, hazards to expect and much more. I was very impressed with how much information was packed into the book without it feeling overwhelming for my kids. They found the storyline to be interesting and were eager to learn about the next country and surf spot.

My husband grew up surfing in Texas and Mexico and said the book is a really good overview for kids and newbs, that it is accurate and isn't cheezy. So there's that.

I enjoyed reading the book with my kids (newb here). This is not a one-sitting read though. It took us a few days of starting and stopping to get through it. I'd consider it a good book to buy and it's re-read value is high because it's so diverse and lengthy.

Surfing facts galore.
I live in Iowa. No oceans here! I wanted to read and review this book to learn about surfing. It is FILLED with information! Who knew you could surf down a river! I think I would recommend a hard copy book instead of an e-book. So many good pictures and facts squeezed onto each page. I highly recommend! Well done.

Amazing Quality, Great for all ages
I bought this book for my boys because they are surfers. The book is amazing in so many ways. The quality and colorful pictures grab your attention but the content is amazing for any age. The authors take you on a journey of not only different locations throughout the world but unique surf spots. The book is full of true experiences and facts pertaining to each surf experience. Surfing an Amazon river wave for12 Kms, riding a wave created by the wakes of oil tankers are just a couple of the unique locations and experiences you will learn about in this book. You will buy if for your children but you will enjoy the fun facts and unique experiences as you visit the far corners of the globe in this beautifully colored atlas.

Colorful, educational and extremely interesting
We love this book! We first bought the hard book which is beautiful, great quality and geographically educational. When the e-book came out we purchased it to see how it compared. It is beautiful as well. We are now going to buy the e-books for our school’s kindle library so all of our students have access to this unique book.

My wife and I have two kids, ages 11 & 13, and we are so grateful for this book! We have tried all kinds of apps and books to get our kids excited about learning (hard to do), and both of them really took to this book! They are enthusiastic to travel (there goes the bank account-lol) and truly "see" the world. This book pairs learning with adventure in a uniquely meaningful way.
