Exhilarating and funny, this memoir of a quest for the perfect wave includes a fascinating outsiders' view of America, as well as an account of a rich friendship Two childhood friends from small-town Wales meet in Miami for a summer road trip they've always dreamed of--to chase the swell of a hurricane all the way up the East Coast in search of once-in-a-lifetime surf. As they follow Hurricane Dean, they also embark on a hilarious journey of self-discovery and a travel experience like no other. Mixing the humor of Sideways with the extreme conditions of The Perfect Storm , this quirky travelogue is destined to become a cult classic.

This book was put on the shelf in the check out section of the Cleveland Public Library-main branch. It lingered there on the shelf because it is about surfing. I picked it up and just fell in love with the book. It is part buddy trip, part how to surfh, part travelouge. The book is written by a Welsh surfer, so his language take some getting used. Do not let that deter you. This is a book that grows on you chapter by chapter. After reading this, I wanted to get a surf board and learn how to be surf bum. You were warned.
