Synopsis: 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.

Book Description Gen X in association with GPG, London, Stated first Publication, 1997. Hardcover. 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.
