In a very personal sharing, John expands the primal stoke of his original The Surfer into a full-blown handsome hardcover book featuring a comprehensive selection of his classic images, personally edited, written, and designed at his Maui art studio. Surf Fever is a historical must-have for pre-’70s gremmies, all those involved in the sport and culture, and for collectors building comprehensive surf libraries.
