Product Description

They're courageous. They're unafraid to take risks. And there's nothing they like better than catching a monster wave and riding it home. Yet there is more to popular surfers in the surf industry than the sport they love. Surfing is more than a sport. It's a lifestyle. Beneath the common stereotypes likes a worldwide family bonded by a mutual respect and passion for the water and waves. In these pages, you'll meet C.J. Hobgood, who rose to the top of the surf world but found it ultimately dissatisfying; Bethany Hamilton, the courageous teen who survived a horrific shark attack and returned to the sport; Al Merrick, a remarkable surfboard shaper who crafts the boards ridden by surf stars and champions. Follow these celebrities into the deep of their individual spiritual journeys and discover what makes them believe that surfing is meaningless without an authentic faith in something more.

Publisher's Description

Surfing is spiritual. Ask most wave riders and they’ll describe some sense of deeper connection with the water, the waves or the power around them. Surfing to them is a spiritual experience. In a subculture that’s traditionally known for its rebellion, here you’ll find a deep undercurrent of faith amongst these top wave riders who share an understanding that the Creator of the waves also desires to know and relate with them. In these pages, you’ll meet top surfers such as C.J. Hobgood, who rose to the top of the surf world but found it ultimately dissatisfying; Bethany Hamilton, a courageous teen who survived a shark attack and returned to the sport; surf legend Tom Curren, a middle-aged father of four whose comeback of sorts is the talk of the surf world; and Al Merrick, a remarkable surfboard shaper who crafts the vehicles ridden by surf stars. Discover what makes these celebrities and others believe that surfing is meaningless without a deep satisfying faith in something more.
