Today, a mixture of Vancouver Island's first families of surfing and newcomers to the sport fight for position on the water but party hardy together on the beach.Join author Grant Shilling as he takes us on a wild ride through BC's surf culture, from the squatters who started it all to the new economics of surf.The Cedar Surf: An Informal History of Surfing in British Columbia is number 10 in the Transmontanus series.
