Review

The Perfect Curl a perfect surf book by surfing legend July 23, 2009

By Ira Aip

This book is loaded with engaging and insightful text and memorable pictures. I learned a lot about surfing and waves and just oceans in general. It's a fun read, and really quite visually stunning. If you're the least bit interested in surfing, the culture of surfing and waves, or just oceans themselves, this book is a must have.

Rod Sumpter is a genuine surfing legend who's surfed waves around the world and there's no one better to lead this odyssey of surfing and waves than him.



awesome surf photography January 5, 2011

By Scott Kurttila

Got this book for Christmas and love it - awesome shots of perfect waves from all over the planet by one of surfing's legendary surfers. it's great to have a book for surfers by a surfer. one thing to note is that this isn't full of epic monster waves like Jaws Maui, but rather, it's a collection of perfect waves from all the best surf locations worldwide. recommended for any one dreaming of surfing the best waves all over the planet...

From the Back Cover

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this from Amazon based on the three 5-star reviews and my love for surf/wave photography in the vein of Clark Little.

This book had some the poorest quality pictures I've ever seen in a photography collection. The resolution of many of the full-page pictures was so low that it looked like a half-loaded JPEG. This product makes me very skeptical of the origins of the three written reviews prior to mine -- don't trust them.

Please do not buy this book!
