Drummond, Ron
THE ART OF WAVE RIDING
(Cloister Press), (Hollywood, CA), 1931. First edition of the first separate book on surfing, a primer on bodysurfing. Drummond grew up in Hollywood and spent summers surfing at Hermosa Beach. This self-published pamphlet walks the reader through the steps and techniques of bodysurfing, and marks the first appearance of a surfing text independent of other material. Printed in an edition of only 500 copies, it is a scarce landmark in surfing, exceptional in this condition. 9'' x 6.25''. Original side-stapled color lithographic cream wrappers with wave design in blue, green, and white. Thirteen photographic plates. [6], 26 pages. Thin line of foxing to top edge of front wrapper. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
