The amazing adventures of a larger-than-life California surfer, cowboy, biker, hot-rodder and board design pioneer, and his role in the birth of the $10 billion global boardsports business.

This large-format, premium-quality 256-page, hardcover book, with more than 250 photos spanning the legendary surfboard shaper’s entire life and career, was written by former Surfer Magazine editor Paul Holmes after research that included hundreds of hours of interviews with Hawk himself and dozens of his friends, associates, co-workers, and contemporaries. The book is more than just the story of Velzy’s extraordinary and colorful life, but also that of the development of the entire surf lifestyle and industry.
