"Fiendishly addictive . . . Comprehensive and compelling." -Sports Illustrated

"Warshaw is the very best sort of teacher, a passionate storyteller with a thirst for the richest details and a knack for bringing soul and character into each biography or bit of lingo."-Salon


The author of The Encyclopedia of Surfing returns with this definitive anthology of the best-ever writing about surfing, illustrated with classic and cutting-edge photographs and artwork. Hip and eclectic, the collection speaks to surfing's widespread and longstanding appeal: from Mark Twain's nineteenth-century description in Roughing It to Susan Orlean's essay on girl surfers in Maui and Tom Wolfe's "The Pump House Gang." This anthology covers it all-from early surfing literature to descriptions of the sport's most colourful characters, from hair-raising tales of big-wave surfing to an exploration of surf culture.

A Great Collection of Stories 15. Februar 2008
Von William K. Hoopes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I own a large library of surf books and have become a fan of the ones that I slow down to savor. This is one of those. Warsaw chose excellent stories in this collection; the variety is wonderful as is the changing pace of the reads and the subject matter varies nicely. This is one of my favorites.

Gold Mine of Surf Writing's Greatest Hits 26. November 2008
Von Whamo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Everything from Jack London, Herman Melville (two top echelon American writers), to Mark Twain (perhaps America's foremost writer), to Rick Griffin (my old friend, RIP)! Perhaps the shiniest piece is David Resin's "Finding Mickey Dora" from that old California magazine (I still own that magazine). I'm not a big fan of Warsaw's anal anaylisis of the art of the liquid easel, but his collection of surf writing raises him to icon status in my eyes, as a Kahuna, worthy of fast company like Drew Kampion and John Severson. I would have included Mark Foo's (another old friend, RIP), article on facing destiny at Waimea Bay, an old SURFER article, "Great Writers of the Sea"(or words to that effect), with quotes by poets on our mother ocean, and of course, my 1978 article from SURF magazine on the hybrid surfboard. If you don't buy this book you'll be a retardess kukess for the duration of your short lifetime, a valley cowboy, aircraft worker, or worse! Hail, gremmies, groms, and pros, to the dead surfers! One last question, there's a book out there, I read it a decades ago, about an old kuk with a redwood board that surfs a big wave amid younger surfers with fantastic plastic new boards. It was a paperback. Does anyone know the title?

For all of the literate surfers out there (yes, they are legion!), this is an exceptionally enjoyable read. Great for an historical perspective on the art and sport of surfing as well as authentic insights on surfing from many perspectives. I have read additional material from the authors presented in this volume and am grateful to Matt Warshaw for the introduction.
A great collection, but missing one essential work, imo. 10. März 2012

I bought this book used in good condition, and it's great. The condition looks like it was read at the beach, which of course suits me fine. The book excerpts and articles contained within are doing for me exactly what I'd hoped- turning me on to read the full pieces, and exposing me to writers I may not have discovered on my own. My only peave is that it doesn't include any reference to or excerpt from the novel Breath, by Tim Winton Breath: A Novel, which I think is a seminal piece of surf fiction and and fun read to boot. Other than that glaring omission, I am thoroughly enjoying my $3.98 plus shipping purchase! :)
