You won't find "Echo Beach" on any map. But for a band of surfers from Newport Beach the stretch between 52nd and 56th street was an entire universe of 80s cool. These Day-Glo surfers singlehandedly demolished the laid back 70s style with a loud blast of attitude. Out of the water, they wore Aquanet pompadours, Wayfarers, and neon board shorts. In the water, they ripped up the wave two feet from local photographer Mike Moir's Canon fish eye. The photos he published in the surf magazines ignited a counter culture that grew into the 80s as we know and love them. Echo Beach captures the marriage of surf and fashion that was ground zero of the 1980s, when a zebra-striped twin fin surfboard and a hot yellow wetsuit was the ticket to happiness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
."..will most likely bring back some good memories. It certainly did for me." - Waterman's Library
"The book is a delight - and not just because of the gleefully loud '80s fashions. Moir's photos, as well Brisick's words, pulse with teenage rebellion and attitude, celebrating the innocent hedonism of youth that transcends time and place." - Forbes.com
"But no matter where you live, this is the perfect coffee table book for any kind of water baby....whether or not you're lucky enough to live by the sea." -Nylon
