4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the bucks
This is a truly great book. It keeps the interest with good and humourous writing, but the tale obviously has a strong thread of sadness throughout.

Brilliant addition to surf literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top surf literature., 15 Jan 2008
This is a fantastic story, set in one of surfing's most intruiging arenas - the North Shore of Hawaii. It doesn't really matter whether the author has lightly sprinkled some 'story dust' over the events, because it's a great read anyway.

The rivalry between Foo and Bradshaw is brilliantly built up, and escalates in an inevitable manner, and the descriptions of surfing and the Hawaiian big wave culture keep Andy Martin's books right up there with the best surf lit. A real page turner.

Alongside 'Riding the Magic Carpet' this is one of the best surf books to come out in ages, and highly recommended. Read it and enjoy!

Well written story of the rivalry between Ken Bradshaw and the late Mark Foo. Good background history of Waimea Bay and big wave surf culture in Hawaii also woven into the book.

This review is from: Stealing the Wave: The Epic Struggle Between Ken Bradshaw and Mark Foo (Paperback)
Been surfing for about 15 years and thoroughly enjoyed this novel. A great story of rivalry between two big wave legends, if you don't understand surfing terminology you may come a bit stuck with various chapters in this book otherwise get ready for an easy read story and a hard to put down book.
