I bought this for my dad who has been surfing all his life and he absolutly loves it. My husband and brother in law have already borrowed it! It seems to be great for beginners or more experienced surfers and has loads of advice as well as interesting history and facts. I dont really surf a lot but I too found it an interesting read and enjoyed the sections about diet and exercise. Really great book.
great for the beginner surfer, buy this BEFORE you get any gear, a lot of handy tips and wetsuits and the right board for you etc. This books a keeper, you can keep referring to it for technique pointers and guidance as you progress.
