Occy: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Mark Occhilupo by Mark Occhilupo
4 of 4 people found the following review helpful
This book is "All-time". A story of the rise, fall and rise of a true sporting legend. A tale of a sportsman who changed the path of his sport only to find the trappings of fame and fortune too much.

This book is a must for any surf fan but stands up as a top read for anyone. The story is one of someone overcoming adversity and realising a life-long dream.

Not only is Occy one of the greatest surfers of all time, he is an example to anyone of how to chase and realise a dream no matter what obstacles lie in your way.

A brilliant read, I'd recommend this to anyone!
