"The Cruise of The Snark"

Some of the earliest writings about "The Revival" period of surfing (1988-1910) were done at the hands of the great American novelist Jack London.

In "The Cruise of The Snark," London writes of his travels in Polynesia, his attempt at learning to surf under the guidance of Alexander Hume Ford, and of Twentieth Century's first surfing great, George Freeth.

Recently, I discovered the book is free, as a download from Project Gutenberg (please consider donating to the project - There are many more titles available). Please go to:
