The Perfect Day: 40 Years of Surfer Magazine
Chronicle Books, Jun 1, 2003 - Photography - 168 pages
Now available in paperback, The Perfect Day celebrates more than 40 years of breaking waves with a collection of the finest photographs and writing from Surfer magazine's famed archives. Packed with full-color inspiration, The Perfect Day captures surfing's biggest moments, from toes on the nose in Tavarua to epic days at Waimea Bay. Here classic articles take readers back to the counterculture 60s, through the 'hang loose' era, and up to professional tube-time for Kelly Slater and the recent revolution in big wave surfing. Born in the back of a Volkswagon van in 1960, Surfer has provided the voice for generations of seekers. Then as now, the closing words of their very first issue define the wave rider's dream: "In this crowded world, the surfer can still seek and find the perfect day, the perfect wave, to be alone with the surf and his thoughts."
