For the first time ever, the "Who's Who" of surfing
divulge their secrets, in one book, a future best-seller.
For the first time ever, many of the world's top surfers
have been assembled to create the most definitive skills
and coaching manual for the sport of surfing. "Surfing:
The Manual" has step-by-step photographic sequences with
intuitive training captions, covering every manoeuvre in
surfing. The chapters are peppered with expert tips and
insight from over fifty of the sport's icons, such as
Andy Irons, Laird Hamilton, Mike Parsons and Tom Carroll.
The book has several hundred full colour photographs by
the top surf photographers, to illustrate each move, or
just inspire you. The book flows from ocean knowledge and
wave understanding, to equipment choice, survival and
etiquette, before getting to the heart of the matter;
take-offs, bottom turns, tube riding, tricks, arials and
every manoeuvre you could imagine. The final sections
deal with such subjects as how to turn professional, and
how to win contests or ride extra large waves. What makes
it unique is the sheer number of professionals who have
taken the time to give away their insightful secrets and
tips, for the first time ever.
