This is a timeless book for the beginning surfer that teaches the fundamentals. The basics haven't changed in 40 years!

Better Surfing for Boys begins with a brief section on the history of surfing, followed by sections on everything from waxing a board to wave dynamics, paddling, standing up, how to catch a wave, and more. Also inlcudes other variations of surfing such as bellyboarding, wake surfing, skimboarding, and skateboarding, along with a handy, albeit dated, glossary of surfing terms.
