Surfing. There's perhaps no other sport as intense, glamorized, feared, commercialized and yet still steeped in tradition. Award-winning surf photographer and filmmaker Patrick Trefz tries his hand at chronicling the vast influence and history of surf during the span of his career in his new book, Surfers' Blood, out August 2012 from powerHouse Books.
The stunning collection of oceanscapes, portraits and action shots highlight both world champions and local heros, calm shores and monster waves, shark attack warnings and outright silliness.
The book includes introductions from Surfer magazine Editor-At-Large Joel Patterson, professional surfer Rusty Long and an essay and interview by author Margaret Cohen.
