The illustrated Kitesurf Map features over 500 wind spots

When we talk about maps, it’s safe to say that details matter. A lot.

In 2010, a German surfer named Simon Schuetz was searching for a world map with the best surf spots, but he didn’t find what he was looking for.

That’s when he decided to found Awesome Maps, a startup based between Berlin and Bali that makes illustrated world map posters for the active traveler.
