The Sport of Kings, developed in Polynesia and refined in the paradise of the Hawaiian Islands, is now global, with surfers challenging the waves from Australia to Atlantic City, from Hawaii to Peru, and from South Africa to Malibu. There's nothing like being alone on a board, charging across a waveface, to free oneself from the cares of the workaday world. And there's no other sport that requires so little gear to participate, and yet gives so much in terms of excitement, challenge, and satisfaction.
With its comprehensive text and brilliant full-color photography, The Complete Guide to Surfing clearly and vividly explains the world of surfing. Here is everything you need to paddle out and join in. Veteran surfing writer and California surfing pioneer Peter Dixon takes you step by step through basics such as choosing the right board, reading waves, and paddling out. From there you will learn how to take your first ride and gain experience as an intermediate and advanced surfer. You'll also learn about the subtleties of board design, etiquette on the waves, safety maneuvers, how to deal with wipeouts, and moves to improve your power and grace.
The Complete Guide to Surfing is destined to become the classic guide to the sport for years to come.
