This noble collection of Wolfeana derived its name from a crowd of California's surfing elite and first drew breath in 1968. It has prospered over the intervening decades because the author paints the 1960s in all its many colored hues.
"A pleasure to read and reread...it brings back a whole world that is in danger of currently jetting and jazzing its way to somewhere else." (Newsweek)
"Tom Wolfe is more than brilliant--he writes like a master." (Book World)
