New book about 50s-60s surf pioneer Miki Dora

Miki Dora's Last Interview aka Underground Journals

Miki Dora’s Last Interview aka Underground Journals was originally written in 2003 as a magazine article and was unpublished. Over the years it has gone through many drafts, and there are several manuscripts of earlier drafts of the book which have been given to known and unknown surf world people in France, California and Hawaii, so that in a sense, it has been published “underground.” Now for the first time, it is being released to the general public. These are actual letters and post cards from Mickey Dora, from 1983 through 1995. Most are concerning film deals in Hollywood about Dora’s life. It also includes Mickey Dora’s own movie treatment about his life. There are also the comic details of a film deal in which Dora’s nefarious business dealings are laid bare. This document contains Dora’s own writing, as taken from his letters during this time, never before seen by the public. Taken as a whole, it shows the spirit of Mickey Dora, as one who is out to live his life to the fullest, and not bend to the conventions of society.   Read the first 10 pages for free, or buy it here.
