Aloha! - Here are my surf books

The Complete Surfing Guide For Coaches Book

This book first appeared in print in 1977. It's my original surf coach book written to help surf coaches involved with the first officially recognized high school surfing league in the US, the Huntington Beach Union High School District's "Sunset League". It is also the book still used by surf coaches and high school or college instructors all over the world. I founded the city's first high school surf club at Edison High School, founded and was Huntington Beach High School's first surf coach, and founded the first high school surfing league in the Huntington Beach High School District.

High Tide - Low Tide by Chuck Linnen, Waerman, Coach, Mentor

This is my second book. I met Chuck when I caught my first outside wave in the early 60s at the Seal Beach Power Plant. He has been my mentor and friend ever since. Books can be purchased for $35 each plus $3 shipping by contacting me at

Gatherings of Greatness, Southland Surf Clubs from the mid 50s to the mid 70s

This is my third book. As a ten year president of Huntington Beach Surfing Association, I have so many memories of surf clubs during that period that I felt it needed to be written down before those of my era have all passed on. Many pictures and stories from back in the day. Books can be purchased for $20 each plus $2.50 shipping by contacting me at

Also take a look at my "Huntington Beach Memories" Giant Surfing CD Available ONLY through Mirror Image - Plenty of surf information not available anywhere else on the Intenet including historical video footage of the very first 3' 10" surfboard from 1968 and David Nuuhiwa holding and riding his very first "Fish" type board in 1969. So much info that you can't go wrong for the price. Worth taking a look. To order the full version of this CD (book included on the CD as well) click HERE
