About The Book
An elegant and surprising history of surfing that examines its cultural influence in some of the most unexpected places
How did an obscure tribal sport from precolonial Hawaii — one that was nearly eliminated on its home islands by Christian missionaries — jump oceans to California and Australia? And how did it become such a worldwide passion, influencing lives around the globe?
In this brilliantly written travel adventure, journalist and surfer Moore visits unlikely surfing destinations — Gaza, West Africa, North England, Berlin, Bali, Japan, Cuba, and Morocco — to give the reader a folk history of surfing. This is a personal sketch for any curious reader of how the modern sport moved around the world and mingled with cultures that either have nothing to do with Hawaii or have strong reasons to resist pop silliness from the First World. The result is the story of hippies, soldiers, nutcases, and colonialism; a checkered history of the spread of Western culture in the years after World War II.
Moore brings to his subject a sense of adventure and relevance that will appeal to surfers and nonsurfers alike.
