Description
Surfing is a booming sport worldwide, with 15 million spent on it in the UK alone last year! This book follows the evolution of the piece of equipment no surfer can be without - the Board! From the days of it's discovery in Hawaii as a hardwood plank and olo board to todays Plastic Fantastic technological marvels, each stage of the board's evolution is shown chronoligically in glourious colour photography, showing how surfing progressed from a little-known hobby to the multi-million dollar extreme sport it is today, and the development of the Surfboard as the perfect convergence of form and function. Accompanied with unique historical prints and illustrations (1950's redwood boards, for example) plus the latest surf photography this book will appeal to everyone - surfers, artists, designers, sports fans - and anyone interested in today's cultural landscape.
