Announcing «The Critical Surf Studies Reader»

If you’ve stumbled across this page, then you’re likely a contributing author, an interested scholar or student, or an errant surfer who somehow ended up finding the preliminary site that we’ll be using to spread the word about the The Critical Surf Studies Reader (tentative title). While this page is rather sparse at the moment, we, Alexander Eastman and Dexter Zavalza Hough-Snee, the editors of the volume, intend to post updates about the progress of the volume and material related to the research of the contributors and authors. We also plan to list and provide links to forthcoming, in-print, and recently published academic monographs related to surfing, regardless of disciplinary focus. We’re excited about the direction of the volume and are looking forward to bringing it to print and digital fruition sometime in 2016. Please feel free to contact Alex or I with any inquiry related to the volume (see the above menu).
