Format: Hardcover
I just received the book, and it's by far the best book written about surfing. First of all, it is very well-written and entertaining and it avoids the cliches about surfing. Cliches about sports are tiring and spoils every good readerexperience. It's simply the most complete book about surfing you can find. It takes you all the way from the beginning to present and on the way it passes the connection between surfing and massculture, surfing and drugs, the dark side of the sport, localism and so on. But it it also full of funny and insigthful stories and quotes from famous and not so famous people, which give a much broader perspective on the sport. Of course you will find the central characters in the history of surfing as well. The book is not only for surffreaks and insiders. It is highly informative and if you are generally interested in sports and curious, it's simply a good, wellwritten book about a sport, which has existed for a very long time.
