November 3rd the California Surf Museum had an opportunity to meet Thom Gilbert, and get your book “Waves: Pro Surfers and their World” signed and listen to some great stories!

Professional photographer Thom Gilbert spent four years among surfer royalty at the top of their game — in Spain, New York, California, and Hawaii — with his camera trained not only on tiny figures disappearing in the waves, but also on the surfers’ faces and bodies back on land. He returned from the beaches with intimate portraits of the world’s best — from the newest talent to the oldest and most revered — and also with dramatic action shots and revealing images of the culture around this sport and lifestyle. The book features not only 300 photographs, but some Q&As with, and hand-written contributions from, prominent figures in the scene. Ultimately, Waves is an ode to surfing and to the men and women who live it every day.
