Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The best and newest big-wave surfing stories from the sports insiders

 

More than a decade ago, John Long published his now classic The Big Drop, an unprecedented look at the larger-than-life frontier of big wave surfing. Since then, the sport has exploded in popularity. The big wave bar keeps rising as extreme surfers continue to seek out, surf, and survive a ride on the elusive 100-foot wave. The incredible stories of a new generation of thrill-seeking, death-defying surfers and stunning, full-color photography of monster waves fill the pages of this new collection by John Long and former surfing pro Sam George.

A powerful, contemporary look at the men and women who live and breathe for the next big wave and the bigger, more dangerous challenge, The Big Juice presents a rich history of characters, controversies, heroism, humor, and tragedy that define the sport.

The best and newest big-wave surfing stories from the sport’s insiders

 

More than a decade ago, John Long published his now-classic The Big Drop, an unprecedented and visually stunning look at that most attention-grabbing category of images and stories—surfers hurtling down titanic walls of water. Since then, big-wave surfing, which ranks with the most exciting of adventure sports, has exploded in popularity. Now, Long and former surfing pro Sam George provide a worthy sequel for a new generation of surfers, The Big Juice.

 

A powerful, contemporary look at the men and women who live and breathe for the next big wave and the bigger, more dangerous challenge, The Big Juice presents a rich history of characters, controversies, heroism, humor, and tragedy define the sport. A vein of true grit runs through the cutting-edge athletes who challenge these monster waves, and that same vein can be found in this outstanding collection of more than twenty stories illustrated by jaw-dropping photographs.
