4.0 out of 5 stars Good stocking filler, 27 Sep 2012
A small but fun compendium of surf-related musings from surfers (Gerry Lopez, Mick Fanning), writers (Tim Winton, Daniel Duane), journalists (Tim Baker, Drew Kampion), actors (Jeff Bridges, Gidget) and musicians (Jack Johnson, Eddie Vedder). Lacks photos but still makes a pretty good stocking filler for Xmas.

Big, thick book celebrating 5 decades of surfing in Jersey. It's very much "For Jersey surfers, by Jersey surfers". Loads of good photos and some hilarious stories from the boyz. A must-have for any born and bred Jersey surfer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lopez rules!!, 9 Aug 2012
In case you don't know, Gerry Lopez is a Hawaiian legend from the 70s. He was the king of Pipe back then, and was also an early explorer of places like G-Land. This is a nice chunky book of articles that he's written over the years, focussing on the places he's surfed (Hawaii, Indo, Chile...) and the people he's met (too many to mention). The stories are great and they're packed with insights - Lopez is a really good writer. Criticisms? Well, the pics could have been bigger and the layout is a bit basic. Still, this book is a must-buy if you're a fan of the legendary Mr Lopez.
