The Switch­foot Books

Surfing World - - Introduction -

Last month Surf­ing World cel­e­brated the mem­ory of Mid­get Far­relly with trib­utes, sto­ries, art and images from those who knew and loved him most. It’s no ex­ag­ger­a­tion to say that mag might not have come to­gether with­out the help of Mul­lumbimby-based pub­lisher, editor and cu­ra­tor Andrew Crock­ett. Andrew has long cham­pi­oned what he calls surf­ing’s glory days of the 60s and 70s and has per­son­ally spo­ken to more leg­ends of those eras than peo­ple who were ac­tu­ally there. He’s put them all to­gether in three beau­ti­ful and rea­son­ably priced hard­cover books called Switch­foot I, II, and III. If you en­joyed the Mid­get mag, you’ll no doubt love Crock­ett’s pas­sion for dig­ging up rare pho­to­graphic gems and let­ting the surfers of the day re­call their own spe­cial ver­sions of histroy. A per­fect gi gift for any surf fan on the run into Chrissy. – ho­
