Hotcurl Legends

Hotcurl Legends
by Malcolm Gault-Williams


This Portable Document Format (PDF) ebooklet tells the story of the Hot Curl surfers, beginning in the 1930s, going on into the 1950s.  Much of the material is taken from personal interviews with Hot Curl surfers Woody Brown, Wally Froiseth, Fran Heath and Russ Takaki.  Some of these interviews were later published, in edited form, in The Surfer’s Journal and Longboard  magazines.

While all of the information in this ebooklet is available in separate chapters at the LEGENDARY SURFERS website (hosted by the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center) and also is contained in Volume 4 of LEGENDARY SURFERS, what is different about this ebooklet is that the Hotcurl story is laid out chronologically and has the advantages of the medium, itself; being a digital file:

-- This “ebook” is completely portable on electronic devices, in a format compatible for reading on any ebook reader. Unlike the content on the website, the content in the ebook is not dependent on a connection to the Internet, unless you want to follow the embedded links to more source material.

-- The 60 pages (30,252 words, 1.5 MB) contain text, hyperlinks, and two pages of footnotes. Again, to follow the links, you'll need to be connected to the Internet.

-- Because the ebook is basically an electronic file, it can be easily shared with friends and family. I have not set any restrictions on its replication as long as normal copyright rules are respected. This ebook makes a great gift from you to other surfers you know who appreciate a more detailed look into the history of surfing and Hotcurls in particular.
