I note that there is very little of substance written of the period from 1990 to the present. Apparently there was little development to discuss.
Matt covers the history of surfing in a concise manner and leaves us plenty of room for thought on all the little tit bits which make up the
full background. As both the art and sport of surfing is so quickly changing and is now being passed to the youngsters, this book is an essential item for the collection of every surfer. As always the big question is, Where is surfing headed next?? How and what will we be surfing in 10 years time ?
