I purchased this book for my son at Christmas. Very well put together, beautiful pictures, tons of surfing info. He loved it. He doesn't read for pleasure much, so it was great to see him reading this book during his free time. I would reccommned this book to anyone, any age, that is at all into surfing.

The great surfing locations never change. Just the people do. I bought this as a gift for my cousins birthday and he was very excited over it. Spent an hour looking at all the photo's. If you are a surfer you will like.

After he opened his present, he sat mesmerized reading this book. He's in his 30s and glued to his I-Phone most of the time. This book was more interesting than his phone. I'd give it 100 stars just for that.

I've been surfing for almost 35 years now and have always loved the photography in Surfer Magazine. This is a great coffee table book and I'm surprised how many of my non surfer friends pick it up and thumb through it while sitting in my living room. You don't have to surf to appreciate the beautiful pictures and images.

I purchased this volume a few months ago, It was in excellent used condition and was priced quite fairly. If you are at all interested in surfing history this is a must have book. Even used copies are becoming scarce, so get one while they are still available.

Love The Book, More So The Longboard Sections, I Started Surfing In Santa Barbara California
In 1962 And Have and Still Ride Classic Longboard Single Fins. the Photos are Beautiful. and Concise.The Only Draw Back to Me is all The shortboard things as I am a soul Surfer all
The Contest crap means nothing. just wish Surfer would come out with the same from 1960-1967
and avoid the abortion of the shortboard.
