Reviews
"Patrick Trefz's book Surfer's Blood encapsulates the thrill and bliss surrounding surfing and surf culture."
-Complex.com

"It's precisely that chameleon-like personality and subtle, informed manner of approaching the world that makes Trefz such a valuable asset in our little surfing bubble [...] Need I even tell you how vital Surfers' Blood is to your aquatic book collection?"
-Nick McGregor, Eastern Surf Magazine

"A gorgeous collection of portraits, action shots and ocean-scapes, Surfer's Blood, is an intimate, gritty take on surf culture all around the world."
-Ralph Lauren's Rugby blog

"Trefz's images ultimately show that what draws people into surfing - and keeps them there - is a unique combination of sensations rarely found elsewhere."
-House

"In his methodical way he's amassed an impressive array of images, ranging from the Curren family at work and play, a skinnier, pre-jujitsu Joel Tudor, as well as his unusual cast of Santa Cruz cretins and lineups."
-The Surfer's Journal

"'Surfers' Blood' is a book that surfers and non-surfers alike could spend ample time with. The skill and breadth of photographic knowledge is evident in Trefz's adept use of film [...] Like a painter, his images are thoughtfully composed. And with an intuitive feel for what's meaningful to the greater surfing populous, his subject matter is relevant and interesting."
