Surfing in Hawaii is a special kind of book about one of the world's fastest growing sports written as a knowledgeable narrative by the talented and traveled Desmond Muirhead
Mr. Muirhead weaves most of the history, much of the philosophy and a good part of the technique of surfing in his story of how he became a surfer, spicing his more pungent paragraphs with wry, sophisticated humor. Ranging widely, he deals not only with surfing in Hawaii, but on America's West Coast and the many other wave-washed areas of the world.
No "how-to-do-it" book, Surfing in Hawaii still provides an authoritative primer for the beginner and an entertaining one for the expert. Thirty seven full-page photographs, many by famed surf photographer Dr. Don James, definitely complement Mr. Muirhead's distinctive approach to his subject.
