North America eBook
As far as surfing is concerned, North America is the most prolific continent on this aqueous planet. Its immense littoral extent meets the mightiest oceans, gulfs and lakes, providing a near bottomless supply of surfing possibilities. The empty wilderness of Alaska shares swells with the chaotic urban line-ups in crowded Southern California, while boardshorts are worn in Florida on the same day that ice forms on the beards of hardy Great Lakes locals. This diversity is also apparent in the rich historical mosaic of pioneering surfers and innovators who have established Americans as the leading cultivators of modern surf culture.
