    If you are interested in HI surfing: "Fierce Heart: The Story of Makaha and the Soul of Hawaiian Surfing"

    Books by Kem Nunn are good reads.

    I actually really did not enjoy this book, but maybe I just don't really enjoy the oral history format.

    In Search of Captain Zero, however, is tremendous.

    Maybe.

    I hear "In Search of Captain Zero" is really good though.

    I prefer "Can't You Get Along With Anyone?"

    I suppose another thread about good books isn't a bad thing. My most recent surf related read was The Wave by Susan Casey. Great book.

    Saltwater Buddha & West of Jesus are real good.

    these books are good... but in the grand scale of books, they aren't. Grab some Hemingway, man. Start with The Old Man and the Sea. It's short, set in / near the ocean, and will make you want to read everything he has ever written.
