Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Surfing's Greatest Misadventures contains thirty of the most engaging, humorous and unbelievable stories of surfing life from the past fifty years. Culled from hundreds of submissions, the non-fiction stories selected for this one-of-a-kind collection run the gamut from the terrifying to the comical to the downright bizarre. The stories represent the highest quality, most engaging surf writing by journalists, magazine editors, watermen, and a handful of everyday surfers. The book features stories about surf legends such as Greg Noll, Miki Dora, Ken Bradshaw, Buzzy Kerbox, Laird Hamilton, Brad Gerlach, Tubesteak and many more.

Synopsis:

The true stories in this one-of-a-kind collection cross the spectrum from terrifying to comical to downright bizarre. It prepares you for the most gripping and unbelievable stories about big waves, shark attacks, tsunamis, boating disasters, devastating wipeouts, pranks, and bad judgment calls. These thirty tales, by surf journalists, filmmakers, magazine editors, watermen, and everyday surfers, illuminate the less enchanting aspects of a life committed to surf.
