"The Illustrated Atlas of Surfing History" by Joel T. Smith with Illustrations by Ron Croci
Perhaps it was a swimmer. There are Egyptian cave drawings of swimmers dating back 10,000 years. Similar representations have been found in places ranging from Mesopotamia to Mexico. The first recreational surfer could have been bodysurfing a wave, thrilled by the experience and swimming out to do it again, or a swimmer clutching to a piece of driftwood and using it to plane on the surface of a breaker. Presented in these pages are representations of how these events may have looked had there been someone to capture those images. These are copies signed by author Joel T. Smith and artist Ron Croci.
