9780156029537: Zero Break: An Illustrated Collection of Surf Writing, 1777-2004

The author of The Encyclopedia of Surfing returns with this definitive anthology of the best-ever writing about surfing, illustrated with classic and cutting-edge photographs and artwork. Hip and eclectic, the collection speaks to surfing's widespread and longstanding appeal: from Mark Twain's nineteenth-century description in Roughing It to Susan Orlean's essay on girl surfers in Maui and Tom Wolfe's "The Pump House Gang." This anthology covers it all-from early surfing literature to descriptions of the sport's most colourful characters, from hair-raising tales of big-wave surfing to an exploration of surf culture.
