All the joy, the danger and the freedom of riding the big waves are told in story, poem and pictrure by the giants of the sport: Duke Kahanamoku, George Freeth, Tom Blake, Eugene Burdick and Dr. John Heath Ball. The excitement and power of water and waves are described by such diverse enthusiasts as Lord Byron, Rick Griffin, Ronald Colby, Walt Whitman, Ron Church, and Gidget.
