California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties


Product Description
Product Details


While Jack Kerouac and co. were on the road, a new generation of casually stylish, deeply tanned daredevils were test-piloting the first modern surfboards and scaling Yosemite's last unclimbed granite faces. They're celebrated in 'California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties, ' featuring 102 photographs that capture legends--surfer Bev Morgan at play in the Malibu waves, rock climber Warren Harding ascending El Capitan--back when they were just kids with an itch for adventure.--Joel Patterson "Details "
Both Tribes are captured in the black-and-white and color images in the book California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties, out this month. The candid, casual snapshots depict early pioneers like Bob Simmons (who shaped some of the first Styrofoam surfboards) and Royal Robins, the first person to climb the vertical face of Half Dome, in 1957. Looking through these images, you'll find it hard not to fall under their spell - or daydream about buying a one-way ticket to the Golden State.--Conde Nast Traveler
