Surfing by Jim Kempton

Book Description

For the first time ever, the "Who's Who" of surfing divulge their secrets, in one book, a future best-seller. For the first time ever, many of the world's top surfers have been assembled to create the most definitive skills and coaching manual for the sport of surfing. "Surfing: The Manual" has step-by-step photographic sequences with intuitive training captions, covering every manoeuvre in surfing. The chapters are peppered with expert tips and insight from over fifty of the sport's icons, such as Andy Irons, Laird Hamilton, Mike Parsons and Tom Carroll. The book has several hundred full colour photographs by the top surf photographers, to illustrate each move, or just inspire you. The book flows from ocean knowledge and wave understanding, to equipment choice, survival and etiquette, before getting to the heart of the matter; take-offs, bottom turns, tube riding, tricks, arials and every manoeuvre you could imagine. The final sections deal with such subjects as how to turn professional, and how to win contests or ride extra large waves. What makes it unique is the sheer number of professionals who have taken the time to give away their insightful secrets and tips, for the first time ever.
