Books On Jeffrys Bay

In this first volume of the Surfline "World Wide Waves" book series, authors Marcus Sanders and Kimball Taylor explore the history of Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, from its initial discovery in the early '60s to the burgeoning surf Mecca it has become today. Through the eyes of its surfers, the town they helped Image of bookcreate, and the wave that brought them here, Sanders and Taylor assemble a storyline as dynamic as the lines drawn on the point itself - from the moments that changed surfing history, to the lives reflected upon Super's frosted walls, to the physical mechanics of the greatest pointbreak on Earth. This 192-page coffee table book features more than 100 photographs by surfing's best lensmen, including Art Brewer, Aaron Chang, Dan Merkel, John Callahan, Jeff Divine, Pete Frieden, Rob Gilley, Tom Servais, Lance Slabbert, and Chris Van Lennep. And with two gatefold spreads that open up four feet wide to capture J-Bay's magnitude, this book is a must-have for anyone who's ever made (or wanted to make) the surfer's pilgrimage to Jeffreys Bay.
