The Mountain and The Wave: The Quiksilver Story
By Phil Jarratt, 320 pages (with DVD insert), $49.95
The opening spreads say it all. Ross Clarke Jones on the Outer Logs bomb of a lifetime. Kassia Meador defining grace and beauty on a longboard. Strider in a Teahupo’o cavern. Danny Way jumping the Great Wall of China. Kelly Slater’s 7th World Title. Since its humble start in 1975, Quiksilver has always dreamed big. And in typical, grandious, bold and vibrant Quiksilver style, this book — an epic collage of photos, essays and memorabilia — tells the complete story, inside-out upside-down, and rightside up of the biggest, boldest boardshort company ever to remain shoeless.
