Digging into Nat Young's Surfing Fundamentals: How to Ride a Modern Short Board is like taking a snapshot of professional surfing in the 1980s. After a token how-to portion for beginners, Young gives us what we really want: hot photos of the hottest surfers from the era, including Michael Ho, Wayne "Rabbit" Bartholomew, Shaun Tomson, Mark Richards, Tommy Carroll, Tom Curren, and Mark Occhilupo. Nat really does a great job of covering a great deal of surfing technique, history and information in 128 pages. This copy is in very good condition, at least 90 percent of mint. Very sharp cover, crisp binding, and stiff pages. A very choice piece indeed. Complete and intact with no torn or missing pages and no cutouts. Copyright 1985 by Nat Young. Hardbound. 128 pages. Measures approximately 10 1/4 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches tall. Click Here for a closer look.
