Surfing burst into life along New Zealand’s beaches in the 1960s. The music, the cars, the boards – the whole exuberant scene had filtered down from California, Australia and Hawaii.
Gone Surfing is the first book to take an in-depth look at the roots of surfing in New Zealand. Through the voices of the pioneers who built the first boards and explored the country in search of waves, we can see the beginnings of New Zealand’s first alternative lifestyle.
Luke Williamson has talked to over 100 surfing founders, all around the country, and gathered a wonderful collection of 300 photographs to give the true flavour of the early decades of New Zealand surfing.
These were indeed the golden years for surfing.
