The Surfing Tribe, 2nd edition

History of Surfing in Britain


The Surfing Tribe is the definitive story of the history of surfing in Britain. First published in 2009, this second edition has been significantly updated and expanded with an additional 32 pages and 60 new photos. Written by renowned surf historian Roger Mansfield, the book pieces together the origins and history of the sport around the country. All the key characters are profiled, from early pioneers like Rod Sumpter to international heroes on the pro circuit like Russell Winter. The book also charts the evolution of British surfboards and looks back at the films and magazines that have portrayed the British scene over the decades.

Press reviews of the first edition:
Encyclopedic, lovingly illustrated and peculiarly British. Andy Martin, The Daily Telegraph
Ably illustrates the richness of Britain's surfing history. Alex Wade, The Times
The UK and Ireland surf community has needed a book like this for a long time. A superb production. Phil Jarratt, Pacific Longboarder Magazine
