Surf Recon Manual

Cover of Prof. Bruno Castello da Costa‘s Surf Recon Manual.

“Continued interaction with the surf predisposes individual and board evolution“,
Prof. Bruno Castello da Costa


Prior to relating to the sport itself, the earliest meaning of the word SURF refers to that stretch of the beach where the waves break. The embodiment of the interactions we perform in the surf comes second, in the form of its derivative form SURFING. In this book, Prof. Bruno Castello da Costa addresses the teaching of surfing starting from the apprentice’s interaction with the surf, rather than that more traditional board-oriented approach.
