'My first impression is just a giant WOW! To interview that many people on a character as fringe as Keith Paull and to print 1000 copies and dedicate that much time and professionalism to his legacy, it is just really heartwarming to see. Occasionally the surfing tribe come together and do something beautiful and this book is definitely coming from a beautiful place of respect and admiration for a surfer who was, by all reports, one of the giants of Australian surfing in the 1960s. The dapper Keith Paull, the 1968 Australian Surfing Champion who once 'held court' at Sunset Beach in Hawaii. The sad and troubling turn of events that happened to Keith in the early 1970s make for an intriguing read and a sad ending, but the end result of this book is a testament to the magic that Keith had in his prime and his contributions to Australian surfing culture and board design.'
