The photographic works of Dr. Don James documented wave riding and ocean exploration from the days of surfers catching 20-pound California spiny lobster in the 1930s to applying decades of learned surfing mastery to backside walls at Pipeline and Waimea in the 1980s. Craig Stecyk crafts us an eloquent introduction to James’ contributions to surf culture.
