Publisher Comments:

Chasing Waves is [Amy Waeschle's] collection of interrelated stories based on these adventures and a chronicle of her evolution from nervous newbie to self-confident and skillful surfer. Anyone who has ever longed for a daring diversion from day job and doldrums will connect with these tales of wanderlust, vagabonding, and riding the surf.

Synopsis:

With a fresh voice and surf-saturated daydreams, this author celebrates the joys of traveling around the world to feed her surfing addiction.

About the Author

Amy Waeschle became a surf addict shortly after catching her first wave more than seven years ago. To her, surfing is more of a feeling than a sport, combining the mental quest for exploration with the physicality of riding a wave.

Hunting down waves in remote corners of the world, from Morocco to Fiji to Canada, Waeschle has found unique and fascinating cultures that have changed her views and fostered her surfing mission.

Susan Gries, July 22, 2009 (view all comments by Susan Gries)
Amy has captured the spirit of adventure, fun, and hard work in this entertaining and easy to read book. I'm not a surfer, but her exploration and persistence in pursuing surfing mirrors any woman's journey to mastering any difficult and challenging sport. I enjoyed reading about her struggles with learning from her partner, finding the time to catch some waves while raising a family, and her descriptions of her traveling adventures. Nice work, Amy!
