Ride the wave of nostalgia with Surf-o-rama, the largest collection of Australian beach culture memorabilia, including artefacts, ephemera and photographs. Meet Duke Kahanamoku, who gave the first public demonstration of surfboard riding in Australia. Relive the glories of Midget and Gidget and cruise the kitsch and the cool in your salt-encrusted panel van.

Surf-o-rama is a celebration of surfing and beach culture. Within these pages you will find brilliant reproductions of the last surviving examples of boards inspired by Kahanamoku's visit and the boards that followed: from superb hollow surf skis, Surf-o-Planes, Ockanuis, balsa surfboards, and beautiful big wave boards, known as big-guns, to the best vintage boards from the 1960s and 1970s and beyond; stunning examples of posters from surf movies including The Endless Summer and Morning of the Earth; standout works from notable poster designers Percy Trompf and Gert Sellheim; rare surf magazines such as Surfabout and The Australian Surfer; and beach-inspired souvenirs and kitsch, surf music and books.

Beautifully illustrated with more than 400 images, this book is for everyone who loves to surf, every surf aficionado or collector, or anyone who dusts off their surfboard or body board and heads out for a summer's day at the beach.
