The Illustrated Atlas of Surfing History
"The Illustrated Atlas of Surfing History: Wave Riding from Antiquity to Gidget" is a unique surf art book inspired by historical documents which prove that surfing dates back 10,000 years or more.
The work is colorfully illustrated with impressive artwork by Ron Croci. The words are by Joel T. Smith.
The book purposefully omits modern surfing, and focus on "tracking the germination and development of an ancient Polynesian custom into an international sport and lifestyle."
