    DescriptionSurfing, Jack London remarked, is "a royal sport for the natural kings of earth." The greatest of those natural kings grant readers an audience in this glorious celebration of the world's best surfers. Part exquisite picture book and travelogue to the top of the world, part biography and reference guidebook, "Legends of Surfing" profiles one hundred great surfers, men and women, from throughout the world. In life stories, and in exclusive interviews--which only the surfing icon Duke Boyd could have pulled off--stellar surfers such as Wayne Bartholomew, Tom Curren, Andy and Bruce Irons, Duke Kahanamoku, Dave Kalama, Gerry Lopez, Rob Machado, Mark Occhilupo, and Kelly Slater give us a rare firsthand look at what it's like, in this crowded world, to "seek and find the perfect day, the perfect wave, and be alone with the surf and his thoughts." (John Severson, "Surfer" magazine, 1960)

    Review quote
    This is an attempt at an entertaining encyclopedia of surfing's all-stars, with Boyd contributing fun facts and richly chosen quotes, while Divine -- photo editor of the slick Surfer's Journal -- raids the archives for images that give a sense of personality to each surfer. Not just a casual read for the surfing buff, but a useful reference on all things surfing."Honolulu"" Star Bulletin"
