|Synopsis||As top guns of the Free Ride generation- the peak of 1970s surfing- Shaun Tomson of South Africa and Mark Richards from Australia ushered in a new level of performance and international flair during the sport's hard-fought battle to establish professional surfing as a viable life path. As a world champion, Tomson was an articulate, handsome tube rider who attracted the first hoards of autograph-seeking teenyboppers in the sport's history. MR, not quite the sex symbol type, was a mild-mannered, deeply respected and popular figure whose surfing choreography contrasted rakish carves and glides. While their respective styles couldn't have been more divergent and they each took their talents to the top of their sport, it was their free surfing that blew the gallery away. Few surfers who were present in 1976 will forget Shaun's backside bravado at Pipe, MR's mach-3 runs at Honolua Bay, or their insane, two-in-the-tube shack at Off-The-Wall. This volume of Journal Biographies provides an in-depth look at these two remarkable surfers.|
