Description
Here's every surfer's dream book! It's beautifully illustrated and describes the world's best surfing sites all over the world. Divided into five sections covering Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe, and the Americas, this volume follows surfers in their search for that perfect wave. The authors recommend seasonal journeys, and take readers along with them to famous sites in Mexico and the Spice Islands in summer, Europe and Africa in autumn, the South Pacific in winter, and Australia in spring. And, of course, there's always California for just about any time when surf's up! An opening chapter on the history of surfing describes how in the 1770s Captain Cook first saw the sport enjoyed by Hawaiians. By the mid-twentieth century, new materials such as fiberglass and polyurethane revolutionized surfboard manufacture and substantially increased the sport's popularity. Approximately 150 dramatic color photos complement exciting descriptions of the world's most famous and most challenging surfing locations.
