The History of Surfing

An interview with Matt Warshaw, author of our newly released The History of Surfing, ran recently in the San Francisco Chronicle. You can read it here.

Matt, former editor of SURFER magazine, spent five years researching and writing The History of Surfing. The result? At nearly 500 pages, with 250,000 words and more than 250 rare photographs, The History of Surfing is an unprecedented history of the sport and the culture it has spawned.
