WHAT WE'RE READING: MIKI DORA BY DAVID RENSIN


An in depth and personal look into the life of ‘The Black Knight’ - sixties Malibu surf scene hero - Mike Dora. He lived off his Hollywood-style good looks, crooked wits, and phony credit cards. Dora led a life we all dream but don’t dare, chasing perfect waves around the globe. Surfing’s own outlaw, Dora’s escapades ended with him spending much of his time running from the FBI, eventually landing him in jail for fraud thirty years later. A complex individual, despite being hero and icon, Dora railed against the same surf industry for the prostitution of surf culture. With accounts from hundreds of Dora's friends, enemies, family members, lovers, and fellow surfers  ‘All for a Few Perfect Waves’ attempts to uncover the truth behind surfings most renegade spirit, but instead  reinforces the myth further.
