Surfing Florida: A Photographic History comes at a time when surfers throughout the world are beginning to seriously document this vital sport and lifestyle through books, museums and surfing history organizations. While Florida is part of this movement, it is also challenged by its reputation for lackluster surf. Yet, because of the inconsistent surf, surfers from Florida share an insatiable hunger for waves and an aggressive approach to the sport that has resulted in an incredible number of world titles for Florida’s competitive surfers and a deep cultural history. Surfing Florida has fostered a new movement to archive and document Florida surf history through collaboration, association, and contributions from all corners of Florida’s statewide surfing community. Read what Steve Pezman, former publisher of Surfer and publisher of Surfer's Journal, says about it here in this special interview.
