 Highly recommended... Malcom Gault-Williams: - LEGENDARY SURFERS - a major work in progress, with new chapters added about every 2-3 months. Currently (20.04.2001) revised chapter on Duke Kahanamoku and Tom Blake. Most relevant chapters to the Australian design are Chapter 1 'Origins', Chapter 3 'Revival',Chapter 4 'Duke Kahanamoku', Chapter 7 'Tom Blake', Chapter15 'Bob Simons', Chapter 16 'The Malibu Board', Chapter 28(?) 'Wood 2 Foam'and Chapter 24 '1956' (includes US/Hawaiian Olympic Games Team introduction of the fibreglass Malibu).
PLEASE NOTE: All this listing, checking and linking is a pain. Sites are constantly added to the net at an increasing rate, sites are changing their address, addresses are changing into other sites and sites are disappearing completely. Many sites who's primary function is to list other sites are full of holes ('not found at this address' or a variation of). I will now (March 15, 2000) only add sites to this page if they have particular relevance to Pods for Primates or are in some way outstanding/highly unusual.

A SUGGESTION: If you find something that is really important to you, then either save it digitally or print it out. There is no guarantee that it will be there the next time you look for it.

Above catagories are based on the relevance to Pods for Primates, some sites have multiple entries. Accessories companies' sites are not generally listed unless they contain some design/historical/cultural content. There are likewise no weather/cam sites, these can be accessed via the Surfing Links list or the Enthusiasts (by region) list, both below.You could also try http://www.getupandhavealookoutside.org

 Manufacturers and Retailer
                    Note: 1.Check List Web Sites and Enthusiast/Club Sites for further manufacturer listings.
                   2.Modern marketing, international brand liscencing and the development of contract glassing has seen the bluring of the distinction between factory outlets and retail shops. Shops have always acted as agents (stock and custom) for specific brands, but now many carry in-house brands.
