    My dad was a surfer before he had children. He even used to make surfboards. A few years ago, he was diagnosed with cancer and right before he died, I bought him this book. It was amazing to watch him flip through the pages and the light that would come to his eyes when he would see the waves and the beautiful images of the ocean. I was so grateful to be able to buy something like this for him to give him those memories before he passed.

    Great photography! Special section on how to do surf photography from land, wave, air and underwater (I'm more of a photographer today than a water person).

    Bought this as a gift for an avid surfer and he loved it! it's beautifully put together and the picture online doesn't do it justice.
