Tom Blake; The Uncommon Journey of a Pioneer Waterman


Meticulously researched by Gary Lynch during the last 15 years of Blake’s life, and written by Lynch and Malcolm Gault-Williams, the book has continued to generate interest and inquiries. Not really surprising perhaps, given what an innovator and pioneer Blake was in surfing during the early- to mid-20th century. From his friendship with Duke Kahanamoku, to his work on lighter, hollow boards, his experiments with the first surfboard fin and attempts at sailboarding, this book is a must-have item for anyone fascinated by surfing’s roots and history. And this softcover issue makes it a very affordable addition to every library or bookshelf.
