    For surf fiction I have a favorite. Tapping the Source by Kem Nunn. Its an incredible story of an inland kid learning to surf while searching for his missing sister at Huntington Beach, complete,with dangerous surf punks, bikers, sex and drugs . He also wrote Dogs of winter and Tijuana Straights. I cannot recommend these books enough.

    I recommend "Surf Is Where You Find It" by Gerry Lopez

    Morning Glass by Mike Doyle is a good one
    High Surf by Tim Baker (or any of his numerous other books)
    And I'll second the recommendations of The Wave by Susan Casey and Saltwater Buddha by Jaimal Yogis (sp?)
    I haven't read captain zero but heard that its a really good one so its on the list

    Bruno & Boots: This Can't be Happening at McDonnald Hall by Gordon Korman......no surfing but a Canadian classic that mimics the freedom and reclessness of youth and surfing.

    Caught Inside by Duane, Daniel is a decent read. I got a thing for that coast anyways. But he tries too hard to be descriptive aboot plants and birds. And any SI member will TOTALLY relate to his story. It's full of tales, man, tales. One day he's pearling on two footers, the next he's tackling mackers. But it's a nice book.

    Oh man he was the greatest when he used to pen articles for SURFER......all of them entailed a whine session aboot him finding a woman. LOL He was so lonely !! LOL

    LOL'ing at the LOL...I was a little disappointed in West of Jesus, thought the book had a lot of potential, and definitely covered some good stuff, but the end left much to be desired in my opinion...

    Agree SS. Salt water Buddha was the better of the two.
