Reviews

"Written by Rusty Long, professional surfer, journalist, photographer, and one of the biggest names in big wave surfing himself, "The Finest Line" takes us around the world, from one legendary wave to the next, with breathtaking images and awe-inspiring stories of hallmark sessions from such breaks as Maverick's, Jaws, Cloudbreak, Teahupo'o, Belharra, Nazare, Shipsterns Bluff, Dungeons, and Puerto Escondido."
--"Style of Sport"
"The photography is predictably stunning, but standard big-wave angles are juxtaposed with moodier behind-the-scenes looks that add humility to all the superhuman feats. And the Q&As sprinkled throughout the book inject honest moments of fear and reflection into all the bravado."
--"Eastern Surf Magazine," "May issue"
At 11.5 x 9.5 and 231 glossy pages, "The Finest Line" s insightful break introductions, swell stories and interviews are sparing, rightly giving prominence to iconic images from 19 big-wave venues, from Maverick s to Mullaghmore to Tasmania.

"The important connection to make here is that our little sport of surfing is plugged into the very same pulse that inspired one of literature s greatest canons: the sea narrative. In "The Finest Line," Long certainly no hack shows just how plugged in we are. Especially those special psychos among us who pack big waves."

"The photos alone in Rusty Long's book "The Finest Line: The Global Pursuit of Big Wave Surfing" are enough to give you sweaty palms. Add that to the inside stories from Long, one of the great big wave surfers, and it's enough to make you wonder, 'what are these guys thinking?' From one seven-story tall battle in the middle of the ocean to horrifying wipeouts and underwater hold-downs, "The Finest Line" chronicles the highs and lows of big wave surfing from an insider's perspective."
"Men's Journal"
A gorgeous, insightful chronicle of this fringe sport s pivotal decade.
"The City Magazine"
