Review
Beautifully written, this work essentially details the author's surfing career from age 10 to 15, circa 1970 to 1975.
With excellent recall, perhaps refreshed with some added research, the historical and technical surfing details are exact. Many specifics developments of the period are addressed...
-the short board revolution, circa 1968  - 1969.
- backyard butchery, circa 1970.
- the rarity of excellent waves
- group dynamics
- twin fins, circa 1971 - 2.
- contests
- leg ropes, circa 1974.
-skateboards
Particular note  should be made of the influence of Surfer Magazine

Review
Cronulla (NSW) teenage beach culture circa 1970 from a female perspective. Although humorous, the book  subtlely critiques the values of the period, most evident in the sobering Epilogue. In the context of the setting, Twin-fins (#1)  are mentioned and there are several references to Jackson Surfboards.The book also records the introduction of recreational drugs into beach culture. It was filmed by Bruce Beresford in 1988(?).
