Essential TSJ reading if ever there was an article. Over 40+ pages, Mike Perry has dutifully told Coop’s story. The article probes deep into the history of surf culture, as well as the depths of Bob’s psyche. One of the amazing assets that Bob made available to the Journal was his cartons of slides, prints and clippings that chronicled much of the history of surfing in California and Australia from the late- ’50s into the ’70s. Bob graced the lot with his recollections, of which at least a good chuck gets to see the light of day.
