Expert instruction you need to take your skills from kook to boss
Author John Robison uses hundreds of pictures--
comical, cartoon-like drawings--to clearly illustrate
every aspect of surfing: wave dynamics, riding techniques,
etiquette, logistics, and more. This entertaining,
easy-to-understand visual presentation makes it easy
for you to pick up his techniques and use them
on the waves. Robison covers every aspect of the
sport, from paddling out through the surf zone and
catching and riding that first wave to nose riding, acrobatics,
shortboard riding, and to equipment repairs.
John Robison is a committed surfer and the author of the successful and similarly formatted Sea Kayaking Illustrated: A Visual Guide to Better Paddling.
