Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beautifully illustrated with color-drenched photography of exotic surfing paradises around the world, legendary surf writer and former Surfer magazine editor-in-chief Drew Kampion's new book is a short history of surfing worldwide and a fascinating journey into the lives of thirteen of the most important surfers ever. Catering to the explosive new interest in all things surfing related, it is the first book to articulate why men and women of all ages are drawn to the sport and why, once there, so many make a lifestyle of it. The year 2002, at least for America's 1,736,000-plus surfers (results from a recent American Sports Data poll), will forever be remembered as the year their sport-lifestyle broke through. Surf imagery and surfers were just about everywhere--huge Hollywood productions (Die Another Day, Blue Crush), nationwide advertisements (Target, Toyota Corolla, Apple Computer, Acura, and Dewars), and much, much more. Surfing has become white hot and, with at least a few more major movies in the works (projects involving Tom Hanks and Sean Penn), there are no signs of it cooling off anytime soon. Beautifully illustrated with color-drenched photography of exotic surfing paradises around the world, legendary surf writer and former Surfer magazine.

Synopsis:

Beautifully illustrated with color-drenched photography of exotic surfing paradises around the world, this gorgeous volume by legendary surf writer Drew Kampion is the ultimate lifestyle guide to a sport that has in the last few years virtually exploded onto the pop-culture scene. No one is more qualified than Kampion, the dean of surf scribes and former Surfer magazine editor-in-chief, to capture the irresistible lure of the sport for the nation's 1,736,000-plus surfers. Kampion's new book is a short history of surfing worldwide and a portrait of 11 of the most important surfers ever. From Surfer magazine founder John Severson, Australia's national hero Nat Young, and Hawaiian surf guru Gerry Lopez, to the most popular and accomplished surfers of today, Lisa Andersen and Kelly Slater, Kampion spends time with the sport's biggest stars, who share the highs they have experienced, as well as the transforming, sometimes profound, life lessons they have learned. More than any other book, The Way of the Surfer successfully conveys surfing's appeal for men and women of all ages--and why, for so many surfers, riding the waves has become a way of life and a symbol of personal freedom and individual expression.
