Praise for "The Surf Music Historian"

Journalist interviews Professor Timothy Cooley in the latest edition of Men's Journal.

"Ethnomusicologist Timothy Cooley's Surfing About Music, is a serious book about a normally laid-back subject. Merging his two lives as a writer-scholar and surfer-musician, Cooley takes a professorial look at his sport from pre-contact Hawaii to the first "surf film" with a soundtrack – that would be 1958's Slippery When Wet – to modern GoPro culture. His research, splashing off the California coast and scrolling through Jack Johnson’s personal playlist, gave the lifelong wave rider a chance to reflect on the ways in which surf culture transcends local culture."
