This is much more than a book for surfers. It is a great adventure yarn - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD This is much more than a surf tome. Science, the environment, the future and personal fulfilment are also on board . . . In a word: gnarly - GOLD COAST BULLETIN 'GHOST WAVE takes us to a place of almost mythic power and tells a story that unfolds like a long ride on a killer wave. I can't imagine doing what those surfers are doing out there on Cortes - and I can't imagine a finer book about them. This is a beautifully researched and compellingly written book; I basically read it straight through from the first page. Terrifying.' - Sebastian Junger, author of THE PERFECT STORM
