A good surf book for anyone interested in the "golden age" of surfing. Mike Doyle is a classic waterman: surfer, paddler, lifeguard, rower, skier, ladies man! This is his story, past and right up to 2000. -- Bank Wright

Author Mike Doyle grew up traversing the bi-polar, Hawaii/California epicenter of surfing culture of the 1960s, his beach bronzed body epitomizing the clean-cut athleticism that graced many magazine photo pages of the day, a refreshing relief from the goof-ball image that had begun the decade with the Beach Blanket movies.
Doyle was the real thing, a So Cal kid with a beach for a playground and a sea to compel him to become an all around waterman and top ranked contest surfer of his era.
Read this book to get a first person account of west coast surfing culture history in the era when longboards ruled, but a stoke was brewing that would launch a million short boards and a billion dollar surfing industry, that was only a gleam in the author's eye during the halcyon days, and the author transitions to a new role, ala Gaugin, as an ex-patriot surfer/painter stationed within striking distance of waves at the tip of Baja California.
