My good friend has managed to secure the very board featured on the fromcover of the 1992 publication "Mark Richards - A surfing legend. The Authorised Biography".
It claims what we already well know, that Mark Richards was World Surfing Champion from 1979 to 1984 and is today considered to be one of the world's most renowned and gifted surfers. In 1991 he was noted in the American magazine "Surfing" as the top surfer out of a list of 100. This biography looks at his life, his career, including its highlights and setbacks, and the more personal issues that have changed his life including the death of his child from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
