The 1970s and 1980s were surfing eras that still held uncrowded secrets - the surf world had yet to be exploited and polluted by the internet pirates and surf industry - these were still simpler times. The majority of my images in these books remain unpublished. There was an alternate path to the competitive and media hype in these decades. We were flying under the radar, exploring new spots, not drawing maps and playing our cards close to our vests. We lived it back then—and this is my story.

This book is a statement on good surfing style, and the use of different board designs that reflect this approach. New innovations as well as theories derived from past surfing transition eras, all the way to modern times - when style actually reemerged as a sought after priority - the reawakening of riding the wave rather then the board - when flowing with the wave became all important once again.
