The End: Montauk, N.Y.

Michael Dweck, Author ABRAMS $75 (182p) ISBN 978-0-8109-5008-5
The dominant subject of this ode to Montauk's surfer community is the cadre of surfer babes--so""beautiful and sexy and tribal,"" says Dweck in his intro--that apparently run the beaches topless. Playfully leaping, rolling in the sand or pouting on their beds sans their string bikini tops, they look like Victoria's Secret models in training. If this attire, or lack of it, seems contrary to surfing, Dweck, who rented a house one summer at Ditch Plains beach expressly to infiltrate this hedonistic clan, rarely shoots anyone on a board. Nor does he choose to capture the quiet fishing village he hopes will remain unspoiled by the tourists who have overrun other Long Island spots like the Hamptons and Fire Island; instead, Montauk is reduced to a couple shots of fishermen and a beachside snack wagon. The rest is girls, girls, girls. B&w photos.
