Christo Reid - Cactus - Surfing Journals from Solitude. Limited 2nd Edition
The Jack Bell Anniversary Edition.
In Australian surfing folklore Cactus is legendary. It was the original 'secret spot' on the edge of the desert. An isolated coastline eroded by extremes and inhabited by ferocious creatures... some of them surfers. This book documents the first 25 years of surfing at Cactus. It captures the feel of the era when a new generation of youth were riding a wave of change.
‘A pre-worn, full-of-sand history of the first surfing at one of Australia’s most revered and mythologised beaches-in-the-desert, Cactus… you can smell the salted and smoked humans in this lovely thing… the production is just perfect.’ Philip White
