Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Former World Champion Nat Young brings surf fans a stunning color history that is easily the most authoritative book ever written on the sport. Young traces the surfing's development, from its origins among Hawaiian kings riding heavy wooden boards to current professionals shooting the pipe on space-age polymers. Spectacular color photographs leap from every page, complementing equally colorful biographies of some of the surfing's most remarkable — and eccentric — pioneers. A special feature includes never-before-published photographs from competitive surfing's early days in Hawaii and Australia.
