An exciting feature of every surf carnival, surf rowing is not a sport for the faint-hearted! The raw physicality, the risk-taking maneuvers and the ever-present chance that misjudging a swell can lead to instant disaster makes surf rowing a spectacular part of each summer’s surf carnivals.
Gun’s Up! features photographs of the action, drama and camaraderie of surf-rowing at Western Australian beaches. Weighing in at a mammoth 250 pages, the book showcases more than 300 colour and black and white photographs. In these photographs you’ll meet the crew, clubs and personalities that drive the sport of WA surf rowing.
Showcasing surfboat crews from Esperance to Geraldton, Mullalloo to Secret Harbour, Bunbury to Cottesloe, Gun’s Up! is an ideal photographic document of the face of WA surf-rowing in the early 21st century, providing fantastic memories for rowers and those who appreciate the sport.
