"Even if you've never hung ten, you'll practically feel the surf and sand while leafing through the colorful pages of surf-inspired graphics, record covers, fashion, film posters and more."
--New York Post
"An ambitious survey of the surf aesthetic's influence on American culture, from Moondoggie, the Gidge, and Pet Sounds to burlesque and the Mollusk crew's new wave return to surf's boho design roots."
"It's all here: Dick Dale, Mickey Dora, Michael Dormer, Bruce Brown and, of course, surf movies/music/art/clothing and on and on. The essays are well-done and informative, but the real joy is the endless summer of art, photos and illustrations."
--San Diego Union Tribune
"A seductive reminder of how cool surf culture was, the kind of book one could spend hours with, poring over the words and images."
--Orange County Register
"Both coffee table book and textbook, with a stunning collection of rare relics and photographs. Sixties pop obsessives will be rewarded with more than enough connections and recommendations to make the book pay for itself . . . With plenty of history and eye candy, Pop Surf Culture wins."
--Boston's Weekly Dig
