What author Brad Barrett calls, “a veritable history book of modern surfing.” This piece provides a collection of photos from 1960-1969 captured by LeRoy Grannis, one of the most published surf photographers of all time. The photos are of numerous influential surfers riding various breaks throughout Los Angeles, at Sunset Beach, Malibu, and Pipeline among other locations.
