Excellent and essential 18. Oktober 2009
Von David Warner Mathisen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Bob Smith's _Basics of Surfboard Design_ is an excellent and essential book describing the critical elements for creating the most important kind of surfboard: the kind that YOU want to ride, on the waves that YOU like to ride. The author doesn't tell you what to do -- he explains the critical "lines" of a surfboard, and how they work, and lets you take that knowledge and build it into your surfboard (or discuss them with your shaper and have him build them into your surfboard). He goes into information about the physics of a surfboard that I have never seen anywhere on the web or heard anyone discuss in the way that he explains it. You should get this book if you want to know more about the way your surfboard interacts with the water, whether or not you actually shape your own surfboards. This book opened up my brain to start thinking about what was going on between my board and the wave in a more informed way, so I can understand not only what I'm currently riding but also so I can make more informed experiments and decisions with the boards I will ride in the future. Most of all, this book doesn't tell you what to do -- it arms you with the experience and insights of one very thoughtful surfer and shaper who shares the benefits of his experiments and observations, and that will enable you to test out in an intelligent way what works for you, and to think for yourself about your surfboard. That is a priceless gift.

Shame on you, Bob 15. Februar 2014
Von RDA - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First off, this is not a book as much as it is a pamphlet; 52 pages, half filled with child sized font and some scribbles. Sure, He covers the very basics like volume, length, rocker, etc, but only what can be told in one paragraph. The questions outlined on the back are hardly answered. I will give credit to his paragraph on the definitions of speed, maneuverability acceleration and quickness, as well as his warning about the effects of marketing hype.
As a shaper, I understand the secretive nature of surfboard design. It takes thousands of boards to start to develope your own theories and designs; It is a lifelong investment. What gets me is Bob Imhoff both trying to make money selling books on the secrets of surfboard design, and trying to protect his secretive trade by presenting surfboard design through vague metaphors and half-explanations. This is nothing new, just typical old, salty, shaper crap.

Far Too Basic 30. November 2011
Von Baja James - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Sadly most of the information in this book can be found on the internet. The illustrations are crude and the information so brief as to be of little use to anyone with any knowledge of surfing. I might give it a 2 star for the absolute novice but that is it at best.

Good for the basics 6. August 2009
Von Hollow Daze - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is great for those unfamiliar with surfing or surfboards. However, being an experienced surfer, I knew most of the information already. Also, the author has his own opinions regarding certain surfboard design issues that vary somewhat from the mainstream (the superiority of vertical fins). Overall, a good starter book on the subject.

Debunks many "established" truths 24. November 2009
Von Nicole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I gotta admit right off the bat - the closest I've ever come to surfing was on a $10 foam boogie board at Coquina Beach in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I live in the land-locked state of Pennsylvania and trips to the beach are few and far between. But when author Bob Smith asked me to review his book "The Basics of Surfboard Design," he said, "I'm always interested in how well it communicates, so I can improve." Bob, himself, is a pioneer in the surfing community having been "at the forefront of the short-board revolution in Hawaii during the late '60s" with examples of his surfboards appearing on the December 1968 cover of "Master of Surf Photography: Art Brewer."

What I like about Bob's approach is that he debunks many "established" truths that I think would be of interest to surfers, such as:

#1: Many surfers have a lack of interest about how and why a surfboard works.

#2: Surfers ride shorter boards than necessary because shortening the board helps make up for an inferior design.

#3: How many fins should a surfboard have? Ask instead - Where should the fin(s) be placed?

#4: Adding a fin will not increase thrust - it will in fact increase drag, slowing the board.

#5: A vertical fin is more stable and more powerful (size for size) than a swept fin.

#6: To get a good bottom, it is necessary to wet sand the surface with progressively finer paper.

#7: The pointy ends on surfboards should all be cut off - they serve no useful function.

#8: Make sure to tell a shaper: (A) what board you're currently riding (B) what you like & dislike about it (C) your favorite surf spot and (D) what size of waves you like to ride.

Overall, the book is primarily for those who are heavily into surfing and wish to have a custom-designed surfboard. The book is mainly text accompanied by rudimentary drawings. Professional artwork would have more fully illustrated the concepts for better comprehension.

I wish Bob had included photos of surfboards that he designed and comments from surfers who use them. Attributed quotes from those who utilize Bob's knowledge in the field would also have added credibility to his theories.
