About this title


In the 1960s, the fishing village of Montauk became the surfer's paradise of the United States' East Coast. Located as the tip of Long Island's South Fork, the easternmost point of the Hamptons, this paradise existed primarily for locals - not surfers who migrated to the beach for the summer, but those who were out in the rocky reefs every day, year round. Today, a new tribe of surfers exists - a group of young locals who live by their own rules. Rule number 1: Never tell anyone where the good surf spots are. Rule number 2: See rule number 1. In the 1990s, photographer Michael Dweck rented a house on Ditch Plains beach (site of the best surf break) and struck up a friendship with one of the local surfers, eventually gaining uprecedented access to the insular local surf community. Dweck's photographic essay follows the surfers through their daily rituals, from early morning wave reports to evening bonfires on the beach, capturing their youthful hedonism. Through portraits, nudes, and photographs of the landscape, this book celebrates lives lived only to surf, and captures an endless summer of perfect weather and languorous beauty.

About the Author:

Michael Dweck grew up on Long Island. He earned his BFA from the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, where he studied photography and fine arts. He began his career in advertising, and received a Gold Lion at the Cannes International Advertising Festival. Two of his long-form commercials are in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York. His first solo photography exhibition was a Sotheby's, New York, in 2003. The End is his first book.
