You could have this before you start surfing to get you through the basics of board purchasing etc. or do as i did, and buy it after you have some of the gear and have been a couple of times, so that you can start doing it right.
A little bit more explanation wouldn't go amiss on some of the points but the basics are all there to get out and practice, as well as usefull info on areas such as board repair.
On the whole, a good starting point.
I handed the book to my bloody beginner friends and they had a lot of fun reading in between their surfing sessions. Loved all the background and safety information. I strongly recommend this book for all beginners who really want to dig into surfing. Never give up! Shaka!
