Haven't got a clue what JSLA is, but you can't go far wrong with Tony Butt's book 'Surf Science'.

There's a link for it somewhere on this site I think. Failing that, just google it.

Well you probably mean that your "know" a bit about it - but pedantry aside - try reading some of the stickies on here as they give some really good tips on what to look for at, or try to get hold of some copies of Surfers Path - Tony Butt normally contributes articles in each issue. It depends how much details you want.

Yeah and what is JSLA?
