Blue Heaven


Australians have always had an affinity with surfing and the beach, and crowds flocked to Aussie surf beaches as long ago as the late eighteen hundreds. 'Victorian' attitudes to decorum and displays of flesh never hindered the country's love of the beach and over the next hundred years, surfing, surf shooting and sunbaking became a defining aspect of Aussie culture. Fully illustrated throughout with fantastic surfing shots as well as memorabilia, Blue Heaven celebrates the heroics of surf life saving, the sixties boom of surfboard riding and the transition of surfing from a lifestyle to a bustling energetic industry.
