bustin' down the door

The History of Surfing
Nat Young

this edition is out of print and features the full-color red wetsuit cover

When Nat Young published his highly personalized, Aussie-centric 'History of Surfing' in 1983, he included the Bonzer but credited Mike Eaton with its invention. The Campbell Brothers threatened suit to correct the error. They were included in the 1987 revised edition.

The Surfer's Journal

"Essential text, well written comprehensive historical overview with great photographs. Duke Kahanamoku at Freshwater: 15 January 1915"

Surf Wars: The Bonzer
