Surf book suggestions/review?

Postby doubleforwards » Wed Jun 13, 2012 2:08 pm

After a few good sessions the stoke is back! Which means I'm after a surf read.

I've just finished KOOK which my wife got me for Christmas, it passed the time but nothing awe inspiring.

SO suggest/review something else if you will.

For anyone looking for a surf book read For a few Perfect Waves the dora biography, a bit heavy to start but a real insight into a legend. What a guy, catch me if you can meets big wednesday!
You would not believe what that guy got up to!

Surf nation by Alex wade

The Surfing Tribe by Roger Mansfield a must have for any UK surfer

Breath is great and I really loved riding the magic carpet by Tom Anderson

I enjoyed tapping the source more compared to dogs of winter.

yeah riding the magic carpet by Tom Anderson is amazing!
Also for an extremley soulful/poetic read check out 'That oceanic feeling' by Fiona Capp - she's fab!
Happy reading :)

Jeff Hakman's biography is good, Mr Sunset. Tells of the move into surfing into a professional sport and his fight with addiction and how/where he is now.
Good read.
