Legends of The Hotcurl

Legends of The Hotcurl
by Malcolm Gault-Williams


Originally put together in 2002, this LEGENDARY SURFERS chapter in Portable Document Format (PDF) format 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 ebook is available in separate chapters at the LEGENDARY SURFERS website, what is different about this ebook 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 computer or mobile device, and freely shareable. Unlike the content on the website, once downloaded the content in the ebook is not dependent on a connection to the Internet, unless you want to follow the embedded links (some unfortunately out-of-date) to more source material.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.

-- Long available by purchase only, this chapter in PDF format is now available completely free. To read and/or download, please go to:
