It all started 10 years ago, with an idea.
After a surf trip through Europe, our founder Simon wanted to track his surf travels by pinning the spots he had been on a map. But a political map was way too boring for that - so he made his own!
The Surftrip Map was the very first one.
We’re a remote team of 6.
We work from all over the world, including Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg, Madrid, Lisbon and Asia.
Plus our extended team. A community of illustrators, designers, web developers and explorers working on helping you discover your world.
We take our time with each new map because we want it to be perfect. For the research we collaborate with experts in their field who know all the best spots for their activity and once that’s done, it’s up to the illustrator to bring it to life.
Lars is the OG!
Lars has illustrated most of our maps, from his studio in Cologne and on location in Bali - he has hand-drawn every bit of the maps he illustrated, old school with pencil and paper!
