We're more excited about the release of The Eighties at Echo Beach on October 1st than we have been about any photo book in a long while, possibly even ever. Why you cry?

For a full review check the next issue of the mag, out September 29th but in the meantime feast your eyes on these amazing pix, including, if you scroll down to the bottom, a certain Kelly Slater, looking very moody aged 10, if only he knew what happened next…
