TOM BLAKE: The Uncommon Journey of a Pioneer Waterman

TOM BLAKE: The Uncommon Journey of a Pioneer Waterman

Due to my retirement move to Thailand, I need to unload about 20 of my original copies of the book I helped write: TOM BLAKE: The Uncommon Journey of a Pioneer Waterman.

This book is the definitive biography of Tom Blake -- the man who invented the surfboard fin, the hollow board, sailboard and the arch-typical surfer lifestyle (among many other accomplishments). Long out-of-print, it is rated with 5 stars on Amazon.com.

Produced by Spencer B. Croul and co-authored by Gary Lynch and myself (Malcolm Gault-Williams), TOM BLAKE: The Uncommon Journey of a Pioneer Waterman was originally published in 2001. Three thousand copies were printed; each book is a 256-page hardcover, special boxed collector’s edition, featuring over 300 images.

At Amazon.com, there are still a handful of First Editions available, ranging from $300-550. Used, the book itself (without the box), starts at $198.99.

I am selling my personal copies, still in their original bubble wrap and custom mailing box for $225.00 each, including shipping, payable via PayPal. Please place your order by clicking on the PayPal icon below:

(If the PayPal "Buy Now" icon does not appear above, use your browser and go to: http://www.legendarysurfers.com to order)

As an added bonus, I would be glad to email all buyers who request them, a statement of authenticity as to where the book came from. If you would like this, please email me your request after you have placed your order. My email address is “legendarysurfer [at sign] gmail.com.” Unfortunately, I will not be able to sign the books, as they will be sent to you from the United States and I am in Thailand.

I’m proud of all my writings on surf history and I thank all of you who have read some of them and who continue to do so. TOM BLAKE: The Uncommon Journey of a Pioneer Waterman is certainly my crowning achievement to-date.
