In times of Corona virus and a whole lot of time at home I want to give you some recommendations on what you could do in order not to lose your mind completely. All recommendations are obviously surf related – it’s all I think about all day anyway. So here goes recommendation nummero uno:

Gerry Lopez – Surf Is Where You Find It

This book is filled with incredible adventures narrated by North Shore hero Gerry Lopez. A must-read for those who like to hear stories told by and about legends, learn about first times of surfing (like the invention of booties and discovering waves in Indonesia), and get a kick out of knowing more about Hawaii’s surfspots and exploring breaks in Indonesia. The beautiful original old-school pictures complete this unique piece of surfing history.

“Surfing happens best when it’s in the present; the past behind and the future not yet. The only thing of interest is what’s here and now.”

– Gerry Lopez
