Product description

Synopsis

"Experience Pipeline" puts you in the middle of surfing's most famous and dangerous contest, the Pipe Masters event. In this 'determine your own adventure book', you're the surf star, and you're competing against two other pros for the world title. The action is gripping, the drama is high, and the waves are huge and out of control! You may end up dropping down the face of a 20-foot wave, getting tubed, or wiping out. You may even be running off into the sunset with an amazing Brazilian body boarder. Or, you could die! Either way, the action is fast and riveting.It all depends on the toss of a coin, which in this book is the mode for moving from page to page. There are over 300 possible storylines, which all begin when you paddle into the waves at the Pipe Masters contest - the last stop on the professional surfing tour. It's just you - the reader - and your two rivals on the final day of competition. If your coin flip comes up 'heads,' you may end up out-riding your competitor to a champagne drenching victory; if you get 'tails,' you might get pummelled by the white-water and crash into the coral reef.Your unique story unfolds by the flip of a coin.

With 89 possible endings, every time you open this book you dive into a new adventure! It is a compelling read for both teens and adults alike.

About the Author

Quinn Haber grew up by the beach in Pacific Palisades, California spending hot summer days in the surf, and nights in the club as the guitarist for SST punk band The Treacherous Jaywalkers. Surf travel started him on a sporadic career of photography and journalism. When the band broke up in 1991, he headed north to Santa Cruz for an education and large, pumping winter surf. What began as a love of surfing led to an obsessive study of the sport's culture and language. From Santa Cruz he moved to San Francisco looking for more action, which he found in heavy beatings and wide open barrels at Ocean Beach. While in San Francisco he worked in publishing for a British book firm and made frequent surf trips to the Philippines. On one of those trips he met his wife, who he now lives with in Oahu, Hawaii. Currently, Quinn works for the state, helping children get free medical care. He wrote Experience Pipeline as an endeavour to put a reader directly into the heart of surfing's most treacherous and famous wave - Banzai Pipeline, the wave that all surfers know but that few will ever surf.
