SURFING: A HANDBOOK (1973)

Written with the "Right Coast" in mind, this handy how-to guide by William Desmond Nelson will appeal to beginners and re-entry surfers with realistic expectations. But don't expect tutorials on aerial reverses and tube riding...

Content includes chapters on waves and tides, choosing the right equipment, paddling, riding, and survival. Special chapters on the female surfer, aging surfers, and competitive surfing. Also includes a listing of East Coast surf shops (now 35 years old) and popular surf spots.
