This is no ordinary surf book, it’s one of only a few illustrated surf books I’ve got my hands on which merits the hype and fuss. The last one was beautifully crafted, with a wonderful page style and attention to detail. Each page contained a deep and reverant insight into the culture of surfing. Seen through the eyes of the elders, and not so elder, Switch-Foot was a celebration of book publishing, as much as a celebration of surfing.
The talented AC again produced this second version, who refers to his work as a dedication to the subculture within surfing. I always feel he has somehow done himself an injustice here, I think that you would be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t enjoy his book, whatever corridor of the surfing world they tread.
