Author Biography - Wayne Bartholomew
WAYNE 'RABBIT' BARTHOLOMEW was the 1978 World Professional Surfing Champion and is currently the CEO of ASP International. Rabbit and his peers pioneered the professional surfing circuit, travelling the world on the proverbial shoestring to a handful of scattered events until a unified World Tour was formed in 1977. Rabbit was rated in the top 5 in the world for eight consecutive seasons and distinguished himself with his cavalier approach to the big waves of Hawaii and his fierce competitive nature. Today, Rabbit lives in an apartment overlooking his beloved Kirra Point and can be found getting his share of set waves on any good day. TIM BAKER is a former editor of 'Tracks' and 'Surfing Life' magazines, and has contributed to 'Surfing Life', 'Deep' and 'US Surfing' magazine. He has also written for 'Rolling Stone', 'Playboy', 'Penthouse' and 'Inside Sport'. He lives in Currumbin, Queensland, and enjoys surfing, travel, reading, cooking, eating and playing guitar.
