9780061826788: The Book of Surfing: The Killer Guide

Surfers are heirs to a rich legacy. From Polynesian princes whose names have been lost to history, to lantern-jawed champs and wave-riding iconoclasts, surfers are tuned deeply into the natural rhythms of the planet. It’s a way of living and a way of being – a physical act that can lead to a state of soaring, sustained euphoria, as well as a billion-dollar industry and a professional sport with its own millionaire superstars.

The Book Of Surfing is a one-stop guide to our surfing planet. There is something here for every surfer, from insider essentials to making the ride of your life and the stories of surfing’s legendary underground heroes to throwing your own beach party – Hawaiian style; and from iconic surf spots around the world to the ultimate surfer's playlist.

Featuring over 300 images, including many by the world’s leading surf photographers, this is the twenty-first century’s most comprehensive dispatch from the heart of surf culture.

Everything you need to know about waves

Classic surf trips, from California to Cornwall

Iconic surf movies and legendary image-makers

Profiles of surfing greats, including Miki Dora, Nat Young and Kelly Slater

Practical advice from being a green surfer to travel essentials

How surfing conquered the world!
