This review is from: Surf Nation: In Search of the Fast Lefts and Hollow Rights of Britain and Ireland (Paperback)
This book seems pretty pointless to me, it's just some guy wondering the UK, interviewing various people who are making a living from surfing, it has the feel of a newspaper article, and doesn't seem to be about search for the Fast lefts and hollow rights in the title. I like my surfing literature to be motivational, to give some insight into the thing I love, from someone who know's their onions.
The writer doesn't even seem to be a particularly experienced surfer, or have a deep enough understanding of surfing to be writing a book about Surfing in the UK and Ireland.
I'm sure he means well, but it left me cold, If you want to read a UK surf book which will have you grabin your stick and heading for the beach, I would recomend 'Riding the Magic Carpet'. Might be a bit of a cheesy title, but it's a superb and inspirational read by a writer who has commited his life to the pursuit of wave riding.
