Celebrating one of the most important aspects of Australian popular culture—surfing and the beach—this handbook offers an entertaining history of the sport and a stunning collection of rare posters, photographs, and various memorabilia. From the first surfing demonstration by Kahanamoku in 1915 to the hollow surf-skis, surfo-planes, big-wave boards, and 1960s long boards, this guide skillfully captures the nostalgia surrounding the golden era of surfing.
