Wave Away by Matt Griggs

Book Description

In A Wave Away, surfer and author Matt Griggs escapes to some of the planet's most intriguing surfing locations. From far-off places such as Israel, Chile and Spain, to the more commonly known beach breaks in Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa, he and his friends from the surfing world explore the landscape as well as the swell. Join Matt for the ride as he finds Ireland's most unlikely surf spot at the bottom of the Cliffs of Moher; hear Kelly Slater riffing about life, the universe, and pursuit by paparazzi; and paddle out into the line-up with Aussie world champ Mick Fanning as he takes on J-Bay in South Africa, then travels to a shanty town to support a woman stricken with AIDS. From Mexico to Indonesia, Argentina to New Caledonia, Japan to Norway, Matt Griggs writes with passion and humour about lifestyles, cultures, and crossing the globe to find the perfect wave.
