* Dive into God's boundless ocean of love with world-class surfer Bear Woznick! Interweaving his relationship with the Lord with his passion for surfing, he invites you to climb on his board as he takes you on a thrilling ride through calm tides, monster waves, and the powerful presence of God. 240 pages, hardcover from Center Street.
For world-class surfer Bear Woznick, the ocean has always been the center of his universe. He's spent his entire life with it; riding its waves, learning from it, loving it. The ocean also nourishes the soul as Bear shows us on his surfboard.
In DEEP IN THE WAVE, readers ride along with Woznick through the calmest of tides and most turbulent waves. Woznick's portrayal of the beauty and power of the ocean is truly inspiring and showcases the profound meaning surfing has had on his life.
From the way a surfboard is painstakingly crafted, to the faith and patience that is required to ride a monster wave, Woznick weaves his relationship to surfing with his relationship to God, relating how the two are often one in the same. Instead of standing on the shore with our toes in the surf, Woznick takes us on the board--to the deep water--to watch and wait--and, if need be, to paddle hard to survive.
Bear Woznick holds multiple Masters World Tandem surfing titles, co-founded the World Tandem Competition Tour and travels the world promoting the art that he loves with BearsWave Tandem Expression Sessions. In addition to his surfing he is a private pilot, holds a black belt, rides a Harley, and plays the ukulele. He is also a novitiate oblate of the Benedictine Monastery of Oahu.
