They embark on a hilarious journey of self-discovery and a travel experience like no other.

Mixing the humour of Sideways with the extreme conditions of The Perfect Storm, this new book by one of the UK's favourite new travel/surfing writers is a quirky travelogue 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.
