Surfer’s Praise for Pacific Passages

Pacific PassagesRead Tim Baker’s Surfing World review of Pacific Passages: An Anthology of Surf Writing, edited by Patrick Moser, here.

“This gem of a book provides just about the best historical overview of surfing, and surf writing, you are likely to find anywhere. . . . This kind of thoughtful, revealing, sensitive contemplation of the surfing life seems like an antidote to the times we live in. I loved this book, if only for the way it helped illustrate that the current buzz and chatter of web silliness is just one very small point on a long, long continuum. Thank goodness for that.”
