New Book Release: <em>Little Man on Wheels</em> by Gerald B. Derloshon

The original hotdogger, Dewey Weber was a charismatic natural surfer who moved constantly on the water when other surfers stood straight and still. His fluid technique inspired generations, and the boards he designed changed the sport. Digging further, Derloshon traces the sad parabola of a forgotten legend: his inauspicious beginnings, worldwide success, and feet-of-clay fall to alcoholism. 

Little Man on Wheels is available today (Type-do-dah Media, 228 pages, $55)
