9780847838288: A Golden Age: Surfing's Revolutionary 1960s and '70s
Review:

"John Witzig's collection of images from the most dramatic transitional era in modern surfing is certainly one of the finest. Grainy, mystical, surf-stoked, attitudinally revealing, delivering a variety of intimate views into all aspects of what was happening then, a movement that freed waveriding to be more sensory than it had been before. Simply stated, well reproduced, with accompanying swatches of relevant text from Drew Kampion, Nick Carroll, and Dave Parmenter, with an intro by Aussie pop culture scribe Mark Cherry. For collectors or historians of surfing, this one is an important addition to your library." "Surfer's Journal ""If you're a surf head, this is going to definitely be a book to pick up." "DoobyBrain.com ."."the book documents a turning point in the history of the sport, both in and out of the water. The photos feel dusty. Lazy. Refreshingly simple. And the more you linger over the images, the more history becomes a feeling -a sea change caught on film." " the Wall Street Journal ""Witzig captured the seminal images of a tumultuous era because he knew then that the men and moments that he photographed were the archetypes of a true revolution....a treasure trove of rare and poignant imagery in and around the Surfboard Revolution...figuratively straddling the line between Then and Now. Without Witzig's images, the most important epoch in surfing might well have been lost in whimsical narratives..."A Golden Age" feels nothing like a coffee table garnish, but instead required reading."" Surfline.com ""Witzig helped plant the seeds for today's surf culture. His writing and photography provided firsthand documentation of the single most important development in the history of the sport: a shift from unwieldy long boards to lightweight and highly maneuverable short boards. At times, pro surfing seems to resemble motocross more than anything in Witzig's book. But "A Golden Age" is intended as more than another congratulatory traw

From the Publisher:

Surfing's formative period from 1965 to 1978, as shown through the most complete book of the iconic images of photographer John Witzig. Chronicling the great creative years in the evolution of surfing, the late 1960s and early '70s, this engaging volume documents the revolutionary changes of the era--in board length, in surf style and technique--through the images of Australian photographer John Witzig. Witzig was not only photographing the scene, he was part of it, a group that included surfers Bob McTavish and George Greenough, and his images reflect both that access and that intimacy. In 1967, he created a firestorm of controversy with a Surfer cover story declaring that a core of young Australian surfers had redefined the sport, as evidenced by his friend Nat Young's blazing win in the 1966 World Surfing championships. Witzig went on to capture the defining moments--the surfers, the draft-dodging back-to-landers, the radical developments of board design, and, of course, the waves, from Australia to Honolua Bay--of surfing's most thrilling period. Soulful, poetic, iconoclastic, filled with rare images, this book is a unique look at surfing's cultural revolution.
