This platinum tome is the most comprehensive visual history of surfing to date, marking a major cultural event as much as a publication. Following three and a half years of meticulous research, it brings together more than 900 images to chart the evolution of surfing as a sport, a lifestyle, and a philosophy. The book is arranged into five chronological chapters, tracing surfing culture from the first recorded European contact in 1778 by Captain James Cook to the global and multi-platform phenomenon of today. Utilizing institutions, collections, and photographic archives from around the world, and with accompanying essays by the world's top surf journalists, it celebrates the sport on and off the water, as a community of 20 million practitioners and countless more devotees, and as a leading influence on fashion, film, art, and music. An unrivaled tribute to the breadth, complexity, and richness of surfing, this book is a must-have for any serious player on the surfing scene and anybody who aspires to the surfing lifestyle. As one surfing scribe has declared, "There has never been a book like this, and there will never be another one again."

"This book is perfect." * The Washington Post * "Pretty much the sport's most epic coffee table book yet." * * "Visual historian Jim Heimann brings his keen eye to the waves, culture, sport, and style of surfing in this gorgeous coffee table book." * The Los Angeles Times * "Surfing is a magnificent book." * * "Surfing will undoubtedly go down as the last word in the space." * The Surfer's Journal * "It's all here - the clothes, the boards, the music, the contests, the rivalries, the surfer dudes. But does the ability to hang onto a floating piece of polyurethane warrant such a paean? It does, and this tome has over 900 amazing images to prove it." * Tatler *
