Jim Kempton’s recent book, Women on Waves, drew a constant stream of visitors to CSM on Big Wednesday, July 14. Jim was on hand to sign books throughout the evening, and many who showed up had plenty of stories to share. Women on Waves is a comprehensive, fascinating history of women’s surfing throughout the world, from ancient Polynesian times to today’s boundary-pushing water-women.
Always effervescent Jericho Poppler got a laugh from one of the many stories shared by Jim throughout the evening.
Peter Townend had a few moments to reminisce with artist/surfer/shaper Cher Pendarvis.
Upcoming Gala honoree, Debbie Beacham, took a moment to sign one of many books that flew off the shelf.
The book has proven to be so popular that the first printing has already sold out!
Please note that the hardcover edition is still available at the Museum Store for $29.95 – while copies last!
