Author: MARCUS, BEN

Description: In 365 Surfboards, surfing expert and writer Ben Marcus brings together the most important, most interesting and most innovative surfboards the world has ever known. From 12-foot-long koa boards of ancient Hawaii to state-of-the-art modern boards utilising streamlined design for maximum speed and maneuverability, the surfboard has undergone numerous revolutions and advancements through the years. Pioneering riders and shapers - from Duke Kahanamoku and Tom Blake, to Greg Noll and Hobie Alter, to Kelly Slater and Al Merrick - have brought their own personal touches and insights to continually refine and redefine the ultimate tool for riding the waves. Each of the 365 boards featured here are presented through colour images and in-depth descriptions to offer a compelling and comprehensive history of the surfboard and the people, moments and innovations that have revolutionised the sport.
