This one is a true bible about surfboards, from the wooden era to big wave gun, transitional shapes, paipo, longboard ... to surf art, surf auctions.
An incredible work, thousand of pics. Just unbelievable. Have a look. It's worth it

Really appreciate this one, guys.
Always take a book or two for the plane on surf trips, would rather read surf stuff for the stoke factor!

Here's one on the history of surfing and surfboards called 365 Surfboards from 2013.With 304 pages and 365 boards featured it's not so overwhelming like The Ultimate Guide at 649 pages.
