About this title


Mr Sunset is the remarkable, true story of a surfing legend. Jeff Hakman surfed waves as high as houses on Hawaii's North Shore when he was just thirteen. By seventeen he had won the world's most prestigious surfing title and been anointed the king of big wave riders by Duke Kahanamoku. At twenty one he was the most successful professional surfer the world had ever seen, and at thirty he was one of the surf industry's first millionaires. But somewhere along the way his life fell apart in the haze of drug addiction, and it has taken the courage of the little boy who surfed monster Waimea Bay with his dad to drag himself out of the gutter and start life anew.
Illustrated with contemporary and classic photos by the world's leading surf photographers, Mr Sunset reveals the surfing subculture as it has never been revealed before. If you only ever read one book about surfing, make it this one.
