If you find my "I'd Rather Ride a Wave" song humorous, I know you'll enjoy this book as well. There are many great and clever points the book makes on the similarities between dating and surfing. I'm planning on doing a detailed review/blog about this book soon!! A definite coffee table surfing book - it will spur conversation indeed!
A couple guys just left their corporate jobs and decided to travel down the entire Pacific Coast, surfing various spots and meeting the local people. Sounds like a super fun adventure to me. I need a sabbatical to try this! A definite book on my must read soon list!
A really interesting auto-biographical perspective from Kelly Slater - the king of surfing - about his start and progression into the sport. Key takeaway from me is that we both have an aversion to tomatoes - ha!
An inspiring book about learning to surf from a girl's perspective. Written by the owners of the Surf Diva shop in La Jolla, San Diego! I read it in Chicago just prior to my move here. Key takeaway from this book - the best surfer is the one having the most fun!
If you're local to San Diego, this is a really cool book about the history of surfing in this fine city! A must read for any San Diego surfer!
