Surfing rules

Always remember the golden rule: surfing is supposed to be fun. Share the waves.

Surfing Book for Beginners

Surfing magazine has called, "Surfing Mastering Waves from Basic to Intermediate," the WebMD of instructional texts. It covers all the basics and much more, including interviews with about 60 experts. I offer personal vignettes, stories of shark attacks, surf rescues and the rich history that makes surfing an engaging outdoor activity. The book also is fully illustrated with my surfing photos as well as a color insert of Mavericks going off.

Below are photos from a past winter swell at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz, Calif.

Find the book at Mountaineers Books has it too.
