Description

Within these pages you will find brilliant reproductions of the last surviving examples of boards inspired by Kahanamoku's visit and the boards that followed: from superb hollow surf skis, Surf-o-Planes, Ockanuis, balsa surfboards, and beautiful big wave boards, known as big-guns, to the best vintage boards from the 1960s and 1970s and beyond; stunning examples of posters from surf movies and beach-inspired souvenirs and kitsch, surf music and books. Beautifully illustrated with more than 400 images, this book is for everyone who has loved to surf, every surf aficionado or collector, or for any of us who dust off our surfboards and body boards and head out for a summer's day at the beach.show more
