When I picked up SURF MULES by Greg Neri, I had problem holding on. Surf Mules starts quick and keeps a pace that is astounding. By the end of the first chapter, there is a drug shakedown, a fist fight, and a death. Before moving on to chapter two, I came up for a gulp of air and said to the writing gods, "Boy, Greg really set the pace high for this one." But the truth is that Neri takes us for the ride of our lives and doesn't allow go until the very latest satisfying MULES takes put during several weeks in the summer of two innocent (yet risk-loving) Hermosa Beach seniors, Logan and Z-Boy. Surfing is in their blood, but one thing leads to another and instead of riding the waves the boys search themselves riding cross country with a load of marijuana packed behind the panels of their Crown Victoria.I know nothing about surfing and even less about transporting drugs, but Neri brings us these worlds with a deftness that makes both feel as comfortable as Logan feels with eat boy to boy interaction, a lot of humor, oodles of action and a small romance will hold readers--teens and adults alike--gripped. So grab a tin of board wax and a Republican Handbook (you'll obtain that reference when you read the novel) and obtain a copy of SURF MULES.
Surf Mules is a book about two surfers who need cash to obtain into college and wind up with the job of smuggling pot across the country. The three main characters are well developed and you obtain to know each one directly and indirectly. the story starts out focusing on surfing but then changes subjects to talk about smuggling and friendship. i would recommend this book, it always has something going, whether its being chased by cops or getting jumped on a highway you wont be bored. If you like modern day adventure books then you probably like this book.
Neri makes water splash off the page as he pulls you into the globe of surfing the huge waves. Logan and ZBoy are opposites who together attract trouble, but whether Logan is breaking the rules, chilling with surfer girl Emmie, or confronting his messed up Dad, you'll cheer for him.When Logan and ZBoy take off for Florida, you'll feel Logan's excitement, his frustration with ZBoy and the fear Logan eventually feels when he understands the dark put his life is really headed.Logan's simple to like, but hard to forget. And when the book is over, the realization will hit you to keep on to Surf Mules because it is a book you will wish to read again.
More than just book of unbelievable recipes, this is a book that chronicles an extraordinary life-- a life well lived. A beautifully written verbal map precedes each recipe and gives the meal historical and visual context. The photos conjured by Mr. Kempton’s prose created me feel connected to the food, as if I were dining in a Basque village or some tropical paradise. Oh yes, the meal is delicious, and the recipes are well executed and simple to follow. I found that Amazon is able to deliver a lot of of the exotic or difficult to search ingredients in one day.
I love the photography and the short narrative behind the recipes. The writing is perfect and fun to vicariously journey around the globe with the author. From a practical standpoint, I love the physical quality of the book. When you are looking at a recipe, the book falls begin gently and stays put. I love this book. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves travel, surf, and cuisine.
Surfers and non-surfers will all have fun and cherish this book. I've purchased 3 copies ( as gifts) because Jim's book is excellent for anyone who enjoys travel, cooking, amazing photography, and has a respect for global surfing.
I borrowed this book from the library and knew I required to own it. A globe travelogue with amazing stories and recipes. We live on the North Shore of Oahu. Right now the Globe Surf League (circus) is in city and now I have a better insight into their lifestyle.
The recipes are inspiring, diverse, and mostly beautiful simple; the author's stories from his globe travels are engaging even for non-surfers; and the photography, both of the meal and the destinations (Morocco, Hawaii, Peru, California, France, and more), is gorgeous.
I initially bought this book as a hostess bonus (its visually appealing cover caught my eye.) Before my event, I couldn't support but take my own sneak peek. I found myself completely captivated by Jim's stories and imagery. Each recipe is beautifully set up by putting the reader in the zone and experiencing the culture from where the recipe originated. Of course, I couldn't support but purchase a copy of my own!! I also love that there is so much recipe dozens (in terms of both region and food course.) I highly recommend for surfers and non-surfers alike! I'm sure I'll be buying again as it truly does create a amazing bonus and one that I can be proud giving.
Taking inspiration from his own experiences as a surfer, journalist, entrepreneur, and globe traveler. Jim has made a blend of gourmet and visual thought-provoking reflections of scenes few will ever experience.Jim gives meal for thought, for readers to imagine themselves as part of an interesting culture. Wonderful photos, stories, and unbelievable recipes, makes this book a must for anyone who loves travel and amazing food. One of the best presents you can give this year for the holidays.
This was a tough one to obtain through, just because I loved welcome to paradise so much. Chas has a very humorous prose and tends to use self awareness to take it to absurdity. I wanted to like this book so much more but the connections just felt so forced. Again, the lack of names to stories makes it difficult to paint a picture and satisfy baseline curiosity and so I found it so tough to really obtain into this one. It’s tough to throw out criticism like this towards an author I do obtain a lot of joy out of reading but this one just didn’t resonate with me, but to each their own.
But Chas barks up my tree and his general viewpoint is akin to mine... so I would have read this book even if it sucked, which it might have? Love the perspective of surfing through a very informed S. Cal cool industry intertwined surfer guy. While talking about how the surf industry protects surfers from openly reveling in their cocaine based antics Chas does still omit names and do the same...I suppose to protect himself. Cocaine + Surfing is definitely not a tell all, but it wants to be.
Surfing needs more humor, and writers who know how to use it. Chas is one of the best at that, and I read anything that he puts out. This book is a fun, fast read that should be consumed by any literate surfer who can laugh at our silly world.
There might be better tutorial books out there but this book does a decent job pointing out the different spots around the various Hawaiian islands. My latest trip was to Oahu and lion's share of this book is devoted to that island. Maui also gets a lot of coverage. This is probably typical of most of the tutorial books covering Hawaii. My one major complaint is the lack of in-depth reviews and info of a lot of of the listed surf spots. Only a few breaks obtain covered in any type of depth. Nonetheless this book served as a amazing starting put and reference during my trip. My opinion on surf tutorial books in general is they are jumping off points. My tip with this book is to use it as a reference but definitely talk to the locals, be respective, and you'll probably score some epic waves. I know I did.
I used the Surfing California book in this series in the past, and thought that was a better book not only because it provided more in-depth reviews and info of specific surf locations, but also because it skipped the body-boarding locations, which I had no use for. Surfing Hawaii will be useful for the person who doesn't know Hawaii well, but I [email protected]#$%! would give detailed info on ALL the locations, not just the ones it deems more popular. Granted it lists beautiful much all the locations, but for a lot of them it only gives a one-paragraph description, while for other areas there can be pages of info. All-in-all, the book could use more, but it does the job and is probably the best of all the surf travel books.
I wanted a book to use as I was planning a trip to Hawaii for my son and I and wanted to know the best surf spots. This book covers locations, seasonal conditions, and rates them. I was happy with the book.
Dennis nailed it! It's simple to see there is a lifetime of hunting experience in this book. While Dennis didn't write it himself, the author, Lindsay Parker, captured the real Dennis that I remember from reading his column in Christensen's Hunting Illustrated.
I got this for my buddy who moved out West to California as a bonus since he wanted to take up surfing. He said he LOVES it and it's given him dozens of info on where to search the best waves.
I rarely leave reviews but this book is a waste of cash and time. Has zero info that is not readily available from surfline and mostly just documents shark attacks at each break. I regularly surf a lot of of the breaks in this book and even the most primary info is often wrong. Don't buy this book.
Much better than previous edition (2005). Inspiring color pics! Adequate detail on surf spots. My purpose for buying was for the SUP information for which there could be much improvements, but still it's a decent book.
ok book. enjoyed a lot of the information. I grew up in California and surfed as a kid, so they missed a few amazing locations I knew. for anyone not knowing where to surf in California it would be helpful. have fun the waves!
solid game, controls are super sensitive but you obtain used to it over time. I definitely like the fact that you begin the game, tap the wave, and you are surfing. No going through various menus, no stupid popups, just surfing. Kind of reminds me of Transworld Surf on PS2/Xbox
I have only playes this android game for a few hours but i love it. It looks amazing and plays well. The controls are simply but don't be fooled, this android game is really hard to master. You might think this is a poor thing, but I think it makes the android game a small more real to life.
