Caught Inside: A Surfers Year on the California Coast by Daniel Duane

A wondrous, uproarious, and surprisingly informative account of a year spend surfing,Caught Insidemarks the arrival of an exuberant new voice of the outdoors. This remarkable narrative of Daniel Duanes life on the water is enhanced by good-humored explanations of the physics of wave dynamics, the intricate art of surfboard design, and lyrical, sharp-eyed descriptions of the flora and fauna of the Pacific wilderness. From Captain Cook and Mark Twain to Robinson Jeffers and Jack London, from portraits of famous (and infamous) surfers to an analysis of Gidgets perverse significance, Duane expertly uncovers the myths and symbols bound up in one of our most vibrant and recognizably American subjects.
