As soon as I saw this book mentioned in the Santa Cruz Sentinel I bought my copy from Amazon, as I have been surfing and windsurfing around Santa Cruz for 45 years. You spend that many years in the water and, besides losing part of your hearing from spending so much time in cold water, you also forget the colorful characters that surrounded you all those years. When my copy arrived yesterday, I had to sit quietly in a corner and stare as each image burned holes into my sealed memory. Thanks so much, Tom, for putting together this collection of photos and memories, and opening me up a little.

My parents owned a home on 38th Street, so I mostly surfed The Point, starting in 1963, before the yacht harbor was built and the Point had beaches, even on a high tide. Sleeping on the beach north of the Hook next to a tiny campfire as me and my friends would listen to the waves crash all night and be on the water at first light. Surf trips to Ensenada, Rincon, the Ranch, and Kauai. Gosh, since this is a book of historical photos, I guess I'm a piece of history now.

If you were never part of this surf scene in Santa Cruz, I'm not so sure this book would hold a lot of interest for you, but for us who have been there, lived it, and loved it, this little book of photos tells a big story.

There are some great insights into the sport and place, so well done to Thomas Hickenbottom, though sadly, I believe he has now passed away.
I was lucky enough to spend a few months in Santa Cruz back in 1989 and got to know the late Al Fox and Wes Reed, who both feature in the book. I chuckled when the author referred to Al's "office" at Cowell Beach, where he did indeed hold court and offer not just surfing stories but life advice to people from all over the world. Incidentally, in 2010 I published a book of bagpipe tunes here in Scotland, one of which is titled Al Fox's Beach Babes (a nod to Al and his affable mentoring at what is a fabulous location and great town).

Thanks

A great pictorial history of Santa Cruz surfing. Only the longboard era was covered.

This has wonderful photos from the start of the surfing era and the photo collection alone makes the book worthwhile. Even better, the captions are full of detail, history, the dangers of the sport, and fun stories. This book draws you in and has you wanting to go catch a few waves to join in all the fun. It features both the men and women of surfing scene. It is also a perfect present for all your beach loving friends. I am happy to have a copy and to share it with friends.

As a longtime surfer, I was instantly drawn to this book, and I wasn't disappointed. But this isn't just a book for surfers. "Surfing in Santa Cruz" offers a wonderful journey through history, not just of surfing itself, but also of a small town that has been shaped in part by the sport. Anyone who has been to Santa Cruz knows what a unique place it is: nestled between the pacific ocean and the redwood forests of California, the city has retained a small-town feel while adopting some big-city ideals. Hickenbottom captures this perfectly within the context of Santa Cruz's thriving surf culture. He includes beautiful photographs that document surfing's heydey as well as its journey into the modern era, and his prose is eloquent and accessible. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to surfers and non-surfers alike.
