Surfboards were once made of wood and shaped by hand, objects of both cultural and recreational significance. Today most surfboards are mass-produced with fiberglass and a stew of petrochemicals, moving (or floating) billboards for athletes and their brands, emphasizing the commercial rather than the cultural. Surf Craft maps this evolution, examining surfboard design and craft with 150 color images and an insightful text. From the ancient Hawaiian alaia, the traditional board of the common people, to the unadorned boards designed with mathematical precision (but built by hand) by Bob Simmons, to the store-bought longboards popularized by the 1959 surf-exploitation movie Gidget, board design reflects both aesthetics and history. The decline of traditional alaia board riding is not only an example of a lost art but also a metaphor for the disintegration of traditional culture after the Republic of Hawaii was overthrown and annexed in the 1890s. In his text, Richard Kenvin looks at the craft and design of surfboards from a historical and cultural perspective. He views board design as an exemplary model of mingei, or art of the people, and the craft philosophy of Soetsu Yanagi. Yanagi believed that a design's true beauty and purpose are revealed when it is put to its intended use. In its purest form, the craft of board building, along with the act of surfing itself, exemplifies mingei. Surf Craft pays particular attention to Bob Simmons's boards, which are striking examples of this kind of functional design, mirroring the work of postwar modern California designers. Surf Craft is published in conjunction with an exhibition at San Diego's Mingei International Museum.

Publisher: Tate Publishing
As he opened his door, he looked down at the new tattoo on his wrist and suddenly felt like something was very wrong— feeling that somehow, he had just taken a major step in some uncharted direction— It is the end of days; the hour written about within the teachings of most major religions of the world. It is The Final Reckoning, the hour of judgment of all Human souls. There are only a precious few who remain to be judged, before mankind is sent to its doom. This is an ominous time, when a champion of the people arises to plead with the forces of heaven for more time to prove just one of these souls, worthy of saving the entire Human Race. In return, he must make the ultimate sacrifice: his very own, soul. He is up against a powerful, rising evil force on earth that is battling for control of these last few, and he is only granted seven days. Can the impossible happen? Can one of these few unsavory people who remain, make a complete transformation of heart and soul in just seven short days and prove to be righteous enough? It is not predicted so, in fact, prophesy speaks of mass destruction. Join author Chad Stone for a story of love, faith, and redemption in The Final Reckoning.
