The 1980s were a tumultuous period in surf history, as the “everything’s groovy” communalism of the previous decade was blown apart into splinter groups. Professionals, rebels, punks, and world travelers all banged the drum for their personal vision of surfing. The result was loud, vivid, and drenched in fluorescence and neon. Photographer Jeff Divine was on the case, documenting the changes from surfing’s twin power poles: Southern California and the North Shore of Oahu. Divine’s access to these scenes, on the sand and in the water, infuse this volume with authenticity as an insider’s look into the period’s most definitive moments shot on Kodachrome 64.
