Product Description

Surfing is more than a sport. It's a lifestyle. Beneath the common stereotypes lies a worldwide family bonded by a mutual respect and passion for the water and the waves. Follow these surf celebrities into the deep of their individual spiritual journeys and discover what makes them, and other top watermen and women, believe that surfing is meaningless without an authentic faith in something more.

Although we cannot see the Spirit of God, Jeremy Jones paints a clear picture of our Creator through the surfer's lives in Walking on Water. This is an in-depth read documenting the movement of surfing and the movement of God in surfers' lives.

Publisher's Description

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.
