I just got an email last night from Jamie Cunningham who is a PHD and Associate Professor of music at Florida Atlantic University. It had info and links to a book about surfing in Florida that he wrote a chapter for about surf music in Florida. There is a photo and a paragraph on the first of many infamous bands I have been in. The Sand Trippers are noted in Chapter 19 along with a treasure trove of info on other notable florida bands from the 60s until now. The book is filled with photos of the history of surfing in Florida. Here is a link and if you are into music, surfing, and or Florida it is a great addition to any collection.
