More About the Author

Alf Alderson has spent over three decades travelling the world in search of perfect surf and snow to write about (well, not always perfect - he does choose to live and surf in Wales...).

His favourite surf spots include the Maldives, SW France and "my 'own' semi-secret spot in West Wales" and he has never wrestled with a shark, been almost drowned in massive waves or surfed a tsunami.

How boring...

5.0 out of 5 stars He LOVES it 18 Jan 2012
By RCM888
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a little gift for my soon-to-be husband and he absolutely loves it. He is a dedicated surfer and said that this book has made him yearn to ride every wave featured in every glorious destination in the book. It's colourful, it's fun and it's a must-have apparently for those who like to surf :-)
