Peanuts
Peanuts
Trade Edition
By Craig Lockwood

George "Peanuts" Larson was the prototypical surfer's surfer, leading the "surf lifestyle" long before such a term was in common usage. It is said Peanuts never had a real job his entire life, but somehow made a living as a lobsterman, abalone diver, fisherman and surfboard maker. He made headlines by riding the biggest wave ever recorded at "Killer Dana" and was likely the first non-native to surf in Tahiti. Great adventures, hilarious exploits, and rare historic photos make this a richly entertaining read.
