Book Description Gen X in association with GPG, London, Stated first Publication, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. VG/VG DJ, HB, Lg. Square Quarto, 192 pgs. A decent copy of this rather scarce biography of this illustrious world chapion surfer and co-founder of the American branch of Quicksilver International. Boards and text are clean, tight and unmarked but the lower free corners of the boards have sustained a bump hard enough to also bump the text block itself. Front board also has a small dent near mid spine. Copiously illustrated in color and B&W. DJ has a few dents and small scrapes including the free corner bumps. No dampstains or soiling but looks like it might have rattled around in the back of a woody for part of its life. Nevertheless a well illustrated and documented biography.
