"...The younger generation...have done with knocking at the door; they have burst in and seated themselves in our seats. The air is noisy with their shouts. Of their elders, some by imitating the antics of youth, strive to persuade themselves that their day is not yet over; they should with the lustiest, but the war cry sounds hollow in their mouth; they are like poor wantons attempting with pencil, paint, and powder, with shrill gaiety, to recover the illusion of ther spring. The wiser go their way with a decent grace..."
This one profiles more than 60 top surfers from South Africa, California, Hawaii, and Australia, including Shaun Tomson, Mark Richards, Gerry Lopez, Michael Ho, Ben Aipa, Nat Young, Wayne Bartholomew, Reno Abellira, James Jones, and many, many others.
Yet another important piece of surfing literature in remarkably good condition. Cover is nearly flawless. Spine shows only very light wear with minimal pulling at staples. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts. We call this a Betty-plus (or mint-minus if you prefer...), about 90 percent of mint.
