Behold, What Is Greater Than Thyself


For everyone that finds Baja hell on earth, someone else considers it the worldís last paradise. For surfers itís a great place to find lonely and perfect waves. For sinners itís a good place to become a s¨aint. For saints, itís a convenient place to become a sinner. While the unlucky can lose their wallets, their health and their sanity in 24 hours or less, the chosen ones part only with things not worth keeping. Baja is a bad place for some, a good place for others and the only place for a young surfer in big trouble. This is a signed copy by Chris.

Ogden: The Visionary Art of Bill Ogden


There is an amazing diversity of artistic style and creativity to be found in the body of work by Southern Californian Bill Ogden. While Ogden is best known perhaps for his surf-related cartoons of the early 60s, his psychedelic posters from the later part of the decade and his tropical fantasies of the 70s, his fine art oil paintings of seascapes, desert scenes and mountain wilderness are simply stunning.

Wolfgang Bloch, the Colors of Coincidence


Wolfgang Bloch sees waves everywherein the ocean, in the grain of wood, in the core of a surfboard that he has sawed in two. Using all of these different media, Bloch creates simple, evocative paintings that transform ocean waves into otherworldly compositions of color and shape. His work captivates surfers around the world, and this first ever monograph of Bloch's work designed by luminary David Carson features his best pieces, alongside a soulful account of the artist's life.
