A 221-page coffee table book covering the arc and evolution of the surfboard, from its origins in Hawaii to the modern world. Sourced and written by a master-shaper, The Gift is insightful and revealing as both an introduction to the history of the surfboard and as a deep-dive into its various forms, players, and trajectories.
