William Cleary's Surfing: All the Young Wave Hunters tells "the whole fascinating story of the sport -- its mystique, its techniques, its history, and its golden rebels...the surfers who shoot the curl from Waikiki to Malibu." Cleary traces surfing from its Polynesian origins to its explosion along the beaches of Malibu, "when the Zen-fed, pot-smoking beatniks made surfing synonomous with rebellion." Cleary also penned the Surfing Guide to Southern California. This classic is in fine condition. Cover and spine show generally light wear. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts.
