Since 1960, Surfer magazine has been chronicling a pastime that confounds description. Now for the first time, Surfer has collected its eclectic array of surf journalism into one volume, from dyspeptic editorials and gnarly travel pieces to great fiction and humor writing. Each piece is introduced by the editors and accompanied by the full-color cover of the Surfer issue in which the article first appeared. With the top names of surf journalism, this authoritative volume defines almost fifty years of Surfer style and substance. About the Author: Dave Parmenter's work has appeared in Surfer, Surfing, and Surfer's Journal. He lives in California and Makaha, Hawaii. Chris Mauro was a professional surfer before becoming editor of Surfer. He lives in Southern California. Steve Hawk is the former editor of Surfer and the author of Waves.
