Search For The Perfect Wave Vol 1. Collector’s Edition

Signed and numbered limited edition in a stylish and rugged cloth-bound hard-cover book and case.



Over 200 pages packed with never-before-seen photos along with the classics, plus new stories, personal notes and details covering Naughton-Peterson’s surf-travel-misadventures.

This is their story, personally curated and told in their own words and pictures, of a decade in search of the perfect wave.

“A pinned-throttle globe trot with surfing’s favorite explorers, ‘Search for the Perfect Wave’ is a surf library must-have.”
— Scott Hulet, Editor, The Surfer’s Journal

“Naughton and Peterson have compiled their original SURFER Magazine articles—along with many more anecdotes and photos—in the first volume of ‘Search for the Perfect Wave’, a gorgeous book that shows life in and out of the water for the two happy-go-lucky misadventurers and their ne’er-do-well buddies.”
— Keith Plocek, KCET
