Product description


"Far from writing a 'jocks only' cookbook/armchair-travel book, professional surfer, editor, and author Kempton has taken great care in assembling nearly 100 universally appealing recipes that represent both favorite and unusual dishes from seasides around the world.... No need to be a bona fide water baby to enjoy this world-cuisine-embracing collection."

"An expansive collection of recipes sourced from [Kempton's] travels on six continents--accompanied by stunning surf photography. Kempton's generous collection is sure to capture the imaginations of home cooks, be they surfers or travelers."
--Publishers Weekly

"The book is chock full of recipes, stories and photos--all inspired by the places Kempton's found waves and adventure. Australia, Hawaii, Indonesia, the Basque Country, Morocco, and beyond--nearly every corner of the world where there are breaking waves, Kempton's got a story and a recipe inspired by that place. For those who are a bit clumsy in the kitchen, Kempton's made each recipe easy to follow and duplicate. And if you're worried it's a book filled only with fish taco and California burrito recipes, fear not. The book has a wide range of recipes for many palates, featuring dishes like Mango Point Potage, Moroccan Grilled Lamb, Ono Poke Bowl, and a Costa Rican Coffee-Rubbed Pork with Marmalade Glaze."
--Surfer magazine
