Publisher Comments:

Imagine surfing a perfect blue wave on a 90-pound redwood longboard, off a deserted beach of sparkling white sand. Surfing San Onofre to Point Dume takes us back to the halcyon days of pre-war California, when the earliest American surfers were busy inventing beach culture. Meet these tussle-haired free spirits who camped on the deserted beaches of Southern California, had lobster bakes and luaus with local Hollywood girls, and surfed at a time when nobody knew what surfing was. The beautiful and nostalgic photographs that surfer Don James took of himself and his friends capture the lost Eden of the California surf dream in all its glory and innocence.

About the Author

Don James was a world-renowned and much-loved surf photographer cum dentist who passed away in 1996. Just last summer he was lauded in the New Yorker, which called him "the premier photographer of surfing." Culled from scrapbooks stored in garages for decades, this collection captures James's most intimate work — his portrait of the early days in paradise.
