"Dale Velzy is Hawk" is a book based on the history and career of the legendary Dale Velzy, an emblematic figure of surf culture.
The incredible adventures of an iconic California surfer: cowboy, biker, hot-rodder, shape pioneer and iconic character who played a key role in the birth of the $10 billion board sports business.
This 256-page large format, with more than 250 photos illustrating the life and career of this legendary shaper, was written by Paul Holmes, former publisher of Surfer Magazine. His research includes hundreds of hours of interviews with Hawk himself and dozens of hours with his friends, associates, collaborators and contemporaries. This book is much more than the extraordinary and colourful story of Velzy, it is also the story of the development of lifestyle surfing and the entire industry that follows.
