Extract from Coastalwatch.com
Over 200 pages and lavishly illustrated with photos by Hugh McLeod, Bruce Channon, Frank Pithers, Jeff Divine, Peter Simons, Mick McCormack, Dan Merkel, Flame and many more, it is an historic record of a ground-shifting era in surfing. In October 1980, struggling with small waves on the fledgling pro tour, Simon Anderson stuck three fins on a surfboard and changed surfing forever.
