Not many guys get a surf spot named after them...

This large-format hardcover book, with more than 250 photos spanning the legendary surfboard shaper's entire life and career, was written from hundreds of hours of interviews with Hawk himself and dozens of his friends, associates, co-workers, and contemporaries. The book is more than just the story of Velzy's extraordinary and colorful life, but also that of the development of the entire California-based surf lifestyle and industry.

Paul Holmes is an accomplished surf journalist and former editor of SURFER Magazine. Our apologies to Paul for cropping out his name on the cover...The book is too large for our scanner!
