Product description

"Perpetually broke, he would eat a spider for a beer, or drink mud from a puddle for a bite of a pie..." The history of Australian surfing has been full of pioneers, outlaws, hooligans and mavericks. This lavishly illustrated book, with profiles of 100 legends of Australian surfing from 'ancient history' (pre-1950s) to the current day, is the perfect gift for any surfer or surf aficionado. Featuring many rare and archival images, along with hundreds of gorgeous contemporary surf shots, Australia's Hottest 100 Surfing Legends is a feast for the eyes. Packed with behind-the-scenes anecdotes from insider author Phil Jarratt, this is a riveting account of the pioneers behind Australian surfing's past, and the mavericks who are now molding its future.
