    Surfing Literature

    Right now in the Northeast is cold, snowing, and f*^&*^g flat. Other than traveling, reading a good surf book keeps me stoked. I recomend "All for a few perfect waves." and "In search of Captan Zero" all recomendations are apreciated.

    Caught Inside is a good book I read it a couple of times. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintence is a good read too

    Reaaaaaaally enjoyed In Search of Captain Zero, and Caught Inside. Would also recommend West of Jesus (dont be deterred by the name), it's a good read. -http://www.amazon.com/West-Jesus-Surfing-Science-Origins/dp/1596910518

    Currently working on the Dora book, All for a Few Perfect Waves. Haven't gotten all too into it yet.

    Captain Zero and Caught Inside are good.

    One of my favorite's is Eddie Would Go, a biography of Eddie Aikau but also talks Hawaii's surfing history, really well written.

    Pipe Dreams, the book by Slater, is also pretty good. Interesting to get inside his head a little see how he grew up and the beginnings to his surfing.

    I know this is irrelevant but the book "Suffer in Silence" is a good book about Navy SEALs going through training in Cali. Its pretty intense. They state the true **** that happens at BUDS and isnt shown on television
