Synopsis

Surfing is a wonderfully liberating sport, freeing surfers to enter the vast natural arena that is the ocean, and to pit their wits against it, one on one. Or at least that's how it used to be. Nowadays, everybody and their mother has decided to learn to surf, and surf breaks around the world are swarming with great shoals of surfers, locked in a do-or-die battle, scratching and clawing against one another for each precious wave. Needless to say, if you can't deal with the madding crowd while surfing, you'll be doing very little surfing at all. "My Wave" seeks to empower those with sufficient wit, talent, and desire, to enable them to work the crowd to their advantage, thus allowing them to catch their fill of waves, even on the most crowded days. Learning to call your wave is a necessity for both the beginning and advanced surfer.

Whether learning the arcane methods of predicting when a swell from a far-off storm will arrive, sizing up your competition and developing a working plan for dealing with them ahead of time, or perhaps feinting and muscling yourself directly through the pack and into that next wave, "My Wave" will provide you with the knowledge you need to do the job, and get the wave. It includes advanced techniques for the serious surfer.
