Dora Lives: The Authorized Story of Miki Dora
Tom Adler Books 2005. ISBN 9781890481179
Unarguably one of the most important characters of the first post-war surfing boom, Miki "Da Cat" Dora remains the archetype of the iconoclastic rebellious surfer. Whilst other icons of the era helped define the sport by developing manoeuvres, technique and equipment, Dora did the opposite and defined the culture with his globe trotting, hedonistic anti-establishment attitude.
Dora Lives features interviews with the man himself, with additions from Craig Stecyk III, Steve Pezman and former Surfer mag editor Drew Kampion, all illustrated with photos and film stills.
A must for anyone with an interest in Dora or surf history outside of the mainstream!
