Other titles shortlisted in the Best Illustrated Book category include offerings by some blokes called Andy Murray and David Beckham…

“It’s the first time a surfing book has ever been shortlisted for the awards, so we’re stoked,” said publisher Chris Power. ”Big, dramatic ocean waves are the focus of the book so a lot of the credit has to go to the photographers who took the shots, guys like Russell Ord, Mickey Smith, Clark Little, Tim McKenna, Brian Bielmann, Alan van Gysen and Chris Burkard. The book was designed in-house by David Alcock and Jamin Lean, who also did a fantastic job.”

The 144-page hardback includes images of more than 50 world-renowned surf spots including Pipeline, Cloudbreak, Desert Point, The Right, Shipstern’s Bluff, Skeleton Bay, Snapper Rocks, Apocalypse, Aileen’s, The Box and Teahupoo.

Around 30 leading surf photographers contributed to Incredible Waves, submitting images of waves in every possible mood from playful to deadly.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Lord’s Cricket Ground at on 21 May.
