About this title

Synopsis:

This is the first book to combine a detailed history of surfing, surfboards, and related collectible items with an accurate price guide. It gives a complete overview of sport surfing from its ancient beginnings in Polynesia and Hawaii until 1969, the end of the longboard era. Included are several innovative features, such as a grading guide for surfboards, Duke Kahanamoku's handprints, and collectible surfing books with their current valuations. The items pictured are from many of the best private collections worldwide, and represent the enormous range of popular surfing memorabilia. The great icons of the sport all put in appearances to make this the book that all surf fans will covet.

About the Author:

Mark Blackburn, a surfer himself, is a passionate collector of Polynesian art. He owns Mauna Kea Galleries on the Big Island of Hawaii and WholesaleRug.com in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
