Vintage Surfboards I
: A photo history of surfboards and surfing collectibles

This wonderful collectible hardcover book is hand-numbered and signed in a very limited edition of only 485 copies.  Within the pages are over 120 vintage surfboards and surf collectibles pictured in a full color matte finish.

Vintage Surfboards I chronicles nearly 200 years of surfboard history and evolution from 1790 to 1980.  Truly a wonderful reference guide for collectors and those that appreciate surfing's heritage.  It measures 8 3/4" x 11" and all the pages are of the highest quality 100# photographic paper.

This special book has appropriately been dedicated to the father of modern day surfing, Duke Kahanamoku.  The back cover image was taken from an original 24" x 60" photograph of Duke surfing at Waikiki in 1911 at 21 years of age.  The front cover is from the original 1928 oil painting by Samuel MacLeod with what appears to also be Duke surfing. 

Your book will come to you hand numbered and signed by both the author and photographer.
