The adventures of a larger-than-life California surfer, cowboy, biker, hot-rodder, and board design pioneer.

Acclaimed surf scribe Paul Holmes weaves a brilliant historical account of surfing’s ultimate cowboy craftsman. If legend and lore are what you’re after, this book is a must. It’s a lavish 256-page hardcover edition with more than 250 photos spanning the legendary surfboard shaper’s entire life and career. Velzy chose Paul Holmes to write his biography, and after three years and hundreds of hours of interviews, the book has become more than just the story of Velzy’s extraordinary and colorful life; it’s the development of the entire California-based surf lifestyle and industry.
