              Instagram sensation Clark Little shares his most remarkable photographs from inside the breaking wave, with a foreword by world surfing champion Kelly Slater. "One of the world's most amazing water photographers . . . Now we get to experience up-close these moments of bliss."-Jac...k Johnson, musician and environmentalist Surfer and photographer Clark Little creates deceptively peaceful pictures of waves by placing himself under the deadly lip as it is about to hit the sand. "Clark's view" is a rare and dangerous perspective of waves from the inside out. Thanks to his uncanny ability to get the perfect shot--and live to share it--Little has garnered a devout audience, been the subject of award-winning documentaries, and become one of the world's most recognizable wave photographers. Clark Little- The Art of Waves compiles over 150 of his images, including crystalline breaking waves, the diverse marine life of Hawaii, and mind-blowing aerial photography. This collection features his most beloved pictures, as well as work that has never been published in book form, with Little's stories and insights throughout. Journalist Jamie Brisick contributes essays on how Clark gets the shot, how waves are created, swimming with sharks, and more. With a foreword by eleven-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater and an afterword by the author on his photographic practice and technique, Clark Little- The Art of Waves offers a rare view of the wave for us to enjoy from the safety of land.

              Point Break: Raymond Pettibon, Surfers and Waves (Hardback)

              Pettibon is known for his characteristically youthful aesthetic and sharply satirical critique of American culture. Though drenched in cynicism, his work empathizes with the dizzying madness of our own humanity as it engages both so-called high and low culture. Perhaps most poeti...c of the many motifs present in Pettibon's oeuvre is the surfer. In 1985 Pettibon began Surfers--a series he continues to work on to this day--popular for its depiction of the lone surfer silently carving a line of beauty, along an impossibly large wave. This publication traces a selection of one hundred surfers from the series, from smaller monochromatic works on paper to colorful large-scale paintings applied directly to the wall. For Pettibon's protagonist in these works-his countercultural hero-surfing exists apart from all else. Momentarily he achieves sublimity on the wave, distant yet synced with turbulent reality. We are forced to confront our own scale: small and feeble in the face of so much sublime power. Pettibon's lyrical writings on these painted surfaces-both his own and taken from literature-reference his own philosophies and the confusions of reality-he critiques the hypocrisies and vanities of the world he engages. To help navigate, the renowned New Yorker writer and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life, William Finnegan, perfectly distills the transcendent nature and lack thereof in Pettibon's work.

              Peter was always looking for a princess, he wanted to find his princess. Unfortunately, the princess was me. I'm the princess that Peter always wanted but never met.' Westerly Windina 'Westerly's affection for Peter comes in many guises. Most of the time it's wistful and forlorn.... When she talks about his awkwardness, his pretending to be something he was not, she sounds like a mother remembering her deceased child.' Jamie Brisick, from Becoming Westerly Peter Drouyn was a champion surfer with a touch of genius who forever changed the face of surfing by introducing the concept of the man - on - man competition format. Known for his aggressive yet elegant style on the wave, Drouyn was also a lawyer, heartthrob actor and showman extraordinaire, famous for his eccentric behaviour and ambitious ideas. For nearly a decade now, Peter Drouyn has been living as a woman, Westerly Windina. The surfing community is at once awestruck, sceptical and supportive. As one renowned surf journalist put it, 'Is this Peter's greatest performance ever?' In a recent issue of Surfing World, surfers voted Peter/Westerly 'the most interesting surfer in the world'. And the world is taking notice. Beginning with her 2012 trip to Bangkok for gender reassignment surgery, Becoming Westerly retraces Peter Drouyn's odyssey from teenage Queensland hopeful to 1960s global surfing sensation to embittered, middle - age has - been to the phoenix - like, glamorous, sixty - four - year - old Westerly. As Westerly herself notes, 'It was like a Supernova. It just kicked in one night and, bang, Peter was gone and Westerly was there... Part biography, part memoir, part documentary, part saga, Becoming Westerly is as much an exploration of surf culture and Australian society as it is of sexual identity. But most of all it is a portrait of two extraordinary people in one, and a very personal account of the courage and self - belief it has taken for Peter to become Westerly.

              In the sixties and seventies, Australian Peter Drouyn was one of the world's greatest surfers. He pioneered an aggressive approach called power surfing, introduced the man-on-man competition format, and charged giant waves in Hawaii.

For nearly the past decade, Peter has been living as a woman, Westerly Windina, a complex, aspiring entertainer. Beginning with her 2012 trip to Bangkok for gender reassignment surgery, BECOMING WESTERLY traces Peter Drouyn's odyssey from teenage Queensland hopeful to 1960s surf champion to embittered has-been who struggles to rise again as the glamorous, sixty-four-year-old Westerly Surf journalist Jamie Brisick provides an intimate exploration of global surf culture-a nuanced portrait of Peter/Westerly and the world that shaped her evolving identity. Brisick also co-directed the documentary film version of her story, titled Becoming Westerly.

              In So Cal: Dispatches from the End of the World, Joe Donnelly's second collection of nonfiction, the title says a lot. The bulk of it is set in the lower third of the Golden State, and even when they're not they ooze a certain SoCal leaning. Reading through the pieces that follow..., I was floored by his ability to breathe freshness into every scene and description --Jamie Brisick, from his Foreword.
