A book by Patagonia about California waterman, Mickey Muñoz. Collaboration was between Jeff Divine of The Surfers Journal, Mickey Muñoz, and the Patagonia team to build a successful book around the life of a truly unique individual. It was never meant to be a biography or coffee table book, but a little bit of both. With this challenge, we determined a size that would read well in bed, but also would be inviting to flip through at brunch. Each chapter being unique, the cadence is ultimately determined by the reader.

ABOUT MICKEY MUNOZ
Muñoz has been called the “surfer’s surfer,” and is loved and respected among the cognoscenti for his contributions to surfing and the surfing life for the past 60 years as a surfer, a pioneer of Waimea Bay, a stuntman (stand-in for Gidget), a board shaper and designer, and as a sailor and boatbuilder (America’s Cup). Mentored by the Malibu greats of the ’40s, and an influence on generations of surfers since, in this book published by Patagonia Books, Mickey weaves the story of a California waterman using his own life and that of his friends.
