Reviews

Surfer's Journal, September 2007 "The Surfboard serves as a general catalog and survey of surf craft form the 20th century onwards."Transworld Surf, September 2007"It's a cool look back at the most important piece of equipment in our sport."
Beach, November 2007"The Surfboard deserves a place in every surfer's library."
Pitpilot (UK), October 2007"Marcus has done a sterling job of putting this book together and accurately describing it as the first ever history of the surfboard ... This book superbly and colorfully documents that evolution of the surfboard."
Spirit of Aloha, October 2007"In a beautiful labor of life, love and energy, he [Marcus] has compiled the first actual history of this ocean icon (ancient Hawaiians surfed in homage to the sea's gods), from old time wave-riding redwood planks to the light-weight, vacuum-sealed technological marvels of the present. The Surfboard features stunning studio photographs, historical prints and engravings, and close-ups of surfboards ... Fascinating and essential, even if you don't go near the water."
