Photographs by Michael Halsband. Text by Joel Tudor.
236 pp., 117 black-and-white and 4 color illustrations, 9x11½".
Legendary surfer, Joel Tudor, and master portraitist, Michael Halsband, met in a parking lot in the late 1990s. Ever since, they've embarked together on a journey around the globe documenting some of the world's most talented and elusive surfing stars for this beautifully crafted book. Tudor shares stories and describes how each figure has influenced his surfing career, and Halsband presents a stunning array of portraits-in huts, in cars, in backyards, on the beach and on the street-shirtless men and Hawaiian prints abound. From the filmmakers to board shapers, from barbeques to the big waves, a real sense of fun and summer pervades the pages of this refreshing exploration of surfing, its competitive and kicked-back aspects represented in balance. Diehard surf fans will find the line up impressive (Kelly Slater, the Iron brothers, and Rob Page to name a few), and non-surfers alike can enjoy the imagery and spirit of adventure here.
