Review

Who were the 100 most important people in surfing? Legends of Surfing, by Duke Boyd, answers that question once and for all! In his 200-page book (big book, with big photos), he profiles not just the best surfers, but 100 of the greatest surfers, shapers, filmmakers, photographers and surf media pioneers. We’ve read a lot of books about the best surfers, but this is pretty cool because it talks about the early filmmakers and surf magazine owners and their contributions to making surf mainstream, including the influence Hollywood had on the popularity on surfing…
There is some seriously good photography in this book, and in each profile there is a not-too-long commentary discussing each person’s contributions to surfing. If you are looking for one good history book that profiles the major people of surfing (and not just the surfers themselves), this is a good call. - Daily Stoke (www.dailystoke.com)



Boyd does an exemplary job of presenting a rudimentary cross-section of surfing’s collective character study in one elegant hardcover. The Surfer’s Journal Photo Editor Jeff Divine’s rich imagery makes up the meat of Legends Of Surfing, with archival morsels coming everywhere from John Severson and Doc Ball’s respective collections to Ron Stoner and Warren Bolster’s classics. The pull quotes and captions are a midterm in themselves, while TSJ Publisher Steve Pezman gives the work and the author additional street cred in his Foreword…While surf magazines primarily care about who’s coming, Legends Of Surfing is all about who’s come and gone, and who’s still going. It’s compulsory for any surfing connoisseur’s bookcase…” - Eastern Surf Magazine



This is an attempt at an entertaining encyclopedia of surfing's all-stars, with Boyd contributing fun facts and richly chosen quotes, while Divine -- photo editor of the slick Surfer's Journal -- raids the archives for images that give a sense of personality to each surfer. Not just a casual read for the surfing buff, but a useful reference on all things surfing.
