Paying homage to those before us, Images of Modern America - Oregon Surfing: North Coast is a book that hits home, literally. Surfing culture began in Portland, Seaside, Cannon Beach, and Pacific City in the early 1960s. Influenced by surf music and a few California surfers, a handful of skin divers and adolescent boys yearned to engage in the sport. In the beginning, surfing was illegal along the beachfronts of Seaside and Cannon Beach. Answering the siren call, locals took to the beaches, while others from around Oregon, Washington, and California found their way to isolated spots along the Northern Oregon coast. The early surfers were not intimidated by their lack of knowledge, poor equipment, or the unpredictable waves. Instead, surfing caught on in the cold waters of Oregon. Experience the early days of Oregon surfing through the pioneer surfers’ stories and vintage photographs.

The authors, Scott and Sandy Blackman, have lived their entire lives along the Oregon coast. Scott, a founding member of the Agate Beach Surf Club, has been photographing the evolving surfing culture for 50 years. Sandy is a successful writer and storyteller. From the pioneer surfing days to the present, this book looks historically at surfing along the central Oregon coast.
