Format: Hardcover
Surfing runs through this book and Allan Weisbecker's life like the stringer in a surfboard, but don't be put off if you have no interest in surfing, it is a reflective and intelligent read, at turns funny as he looks back and recounts past anecdotes and also sad as he considers the eventual fate of Captain Zero. A definite could-not-put-it-down read.

What a great book. I was travelling to Portugal for my holiday and fancied trying a bit of surfing,so I thought I'd take this book to read.
The trouble is,after reading Allan's wild adventures down south in central America the thought of sitting in a mini bus with 10 other newbies and getting driven out to the nursery waves just seemed ridiculous :-)
This guy has lived a hell of a life,and if only 50% is true its still a cracking story.
The tension is hanging in the air all the way to Costa Rica. But humour too. And,of course,cracking stories of adventure on the waves.
I have to admit I probably wouldn't get on a boat with this sailor !
I enjoyed his surf philosophy too.
I laughed and i cried reading this book. I'm not going to give anything away though. Buy it. Take it on the road. Its where it belongs.

I enjoyed this book. Great descriptions of US and Mexico / Costa Rica. Funny in places and Weisbecker has an interesting tale to tell. If you like it check out the DVD Zen and Zero, also quite quirky.

This is an epic book that is still not as widely known as it should be. Buy it and revel in an unrivalled surfing adventure.

Weisbecker gets everything spot on and if you read it in preperation to going away I reckon it will make your trip that little bit more special.

Perfect.

I'm reluctant to give any book five stars and maybe I'll downgrade this in future, but for now it's the best read I've found for years. Weisbecker is a hugely entertaining author who has put some incredible experiences down on paper. You don't need to surf to enjoy it ('though you may get a little more from it), I laughed out loud a lot but also got a couple of jolts recognising parallels with my own life although I've lived a hell of a lot more sheltered one than Weisbecker! Hopefully his new book will get out of litigation and on sale soon as this has left me hungry for more. Buy it now!
