Surfing-phile Book Release Party on Tues., Oct. 24th
If fellow SF Metblogger Richard Ault’s Ocean Beach photos of yesterday’s big surf didn’t stoke you enough:
Two new, coffee-table surf-dream books have been published by Chronicle Books, and there’s a book signing by the authors and other surf stars on Tuesday, October 24th. This Surfrider San Francisco benefit celebrates the publication of Inside Maverick’s and Photo/Stoner at 111 Minna Gallery. Down some beers and mingle with surf authors & luminaries Matt Warshaw, Doug Acton, Grant Washburn, Jeff Divine, Bruce Jenkins (of San Francisco Chronicle 3-Dot Lounge fame), Maverick’s surfers, and more.
Doors open at 6:30 for the scramble for seats, and the show starts off with a 7:00 P.M. slideshow by The Surfer’s Journal’s Jeff Divine, showcasing Ron Stoner photos not published in Warshaw’s book. Stoner was a pioneering Surfer Magazine photographer who mysteriously disappeared in the ’70s. Then, catch Doug Acton & Grant Washburn’s fantastic new Maverick’s footage to gear us all up for the excitment of the anytime soon Maverick’s big-wave season.
And what the hell is surf-related festivities without surf music! After the slides and the film footage, listen to HIWATTERS and DJ Shabadoo. There’s also a raffle for VIP seats on the 2007 Maverick’s Surf Contest boat and a silent auction for more boat seats and the art work of Casey O’Connell.
ADMISSION is $5 or FREE with ADVANCE book purchase (which includes two free raffle entries, too!). Tix, books & info: www.zunasurf.com/minna.
