The Surfboard: Art, Style, Stoke
Author: Ben Marcus
The history of the surfboard is one of innovation that has in turn shaped the sport of surfing.
"The Surfboard" follows this history, from the first "wave-riding" redwood planks crafted by ancient Hawaiians to the vacuum-sealed, lightweight, "plastic fantastic" technological marvels of today.
Beautifully illustrated with historical prints and engravings, as well as the latest surf photography and detailed closeups, this book documents the surfboards evolution as a perfect convergence of form and function.
