SURF'S UP

What better way to while away a summer day than with a literary surfin' safari?

The Surf Guru: Stories (Riverhead) by Doug Dorst is a collection of inventive short stories, not all about surfing, but the title story, a snapshot portrait of a surfing bodhisattva turned business mogul, is a gem.

Sweetness and Blood: How Surfing Spread From Hawaii and California to the Rest of the World, With Some Unexpected Results (Rodale) by Michael Scott Moore is a lively combination of international travelogue, history and pop culture analysis by a novelist-journalist-surfer.

The Wave Watcher's Companion: From Ocean Waves to Light Waves via Shock Waves, Stadium Waves and All the Rest of Life's Undulations (Perigee) by Gavin Pretor-Pinney is that rare thing - a quirky, funny book about science, including the science of surf.
