TASCHEN BOOKS - LeRoy Grannis. Surf Photography of the 1960s and 1970s

A fresh re-edition of LeRoy Grannis’s sold-out Collector’s Edition, this collection gathers his most vibrant surf photography—from the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu’s famed North Shore. One of the key image-makers in surfing history, Grannis also covers the emerging surf lifestyle, from “surfer stomps” and hordes of fans at surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacific Coast Highway.

Clothbound, 17.2 x 24 cm, 1.85 kg, 400 pages

“Grannis’s pictures are startling. The scenes they record and breaks they document are pristinely beautiful and impossibly vacant.” - The New York Times
