Gift, much appreciated Much to learn about, he said An excellent example of an author s passion for and interest in a massive subject and set of experiences, shared with us in an engaging style Full of facts and advice for the schooled and less schooled water adventurer. Fantastic book Written with passion by a man who clearly enjoys and embraces the ocean Intuitive and fun illustrations throughout Great addition to any coastal home. I bought this after reading a review in the paper, I m interested in our shores and the sea, but was slightly disappointed in the emphasis on surfing which wasn t really indicated in the review Great illustrations. Love the topic, good graphics and a comfortable pick up and read a bit book to use Not a handbook. Bought as a grift for my husband, who is a water sport fanatic Loves everything from surfing, to rowing to swimming and plenty in between He s found it a fascinating read and keeps treating the family to fascinating little snippets from this book.
