Robertson's Reads: Pop Surf Culture by Domenic Priore

 

Surf’s up, dudettes!

In the spirit of Summer, I can’t help but get excited when I think about Venice Beach, bikinis, and drive-in movies.

The Pop Surf Culture: Music, Design, Film, and Fashion from the Bohemian Surf Boom is both an insightful and an inspiring look at the cowabunga culture of the 1950s and 60s — from beachcombers to bra burning to … the Trashwomen? Oh yes. But this book is not all fluff: Priore even takes a detailed look at the complex relationship that surf culture had to the decade of love and peace.

Available for preorder via ChaptersIndigo.ca.
