Does the name Michael Fordham sound familiar? How about Jeff Divine, Michel Junod, or Joel Tudor?
Junod grew up at the beaches surrounding Ocean Park, Santa Monica later to become a legendary surfboard shaper and staple to the '30 days of dawn patrol' crew. If you have ever picked up a Surfers Journal before, then you have seen Divine's photographs. Tudor, well Tudor is pure style.
Fordham is the author of The Surfing Book; Killer Guide. He took a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles in search of the 'heart of American surf culture'. Stopping a long the way, surfing, and meeting some mentioned names above, he discovers more about this rich culture and how it has evolved over the years.
