Can't wait for the screenplay! Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. The charm of this book is the way it's told--reflections of a childhood feeling loved, protected, nurtured and special regardless of the economic or social conditions. And if "a picture's worth 1,000 words" then the ones contained within these pages are infinitely wonderful. This book is a heartwarming account of the pioneering spirit that has sparked a worldwide surfing sensation -- surfer or not, it'll spark your zeal for family and seeking a life of fulfillment.
