In the winter of mid-eighties, two surfers are battling for supremacy at Waimea Bay, home to the biggest waves in the world. Old-school, and some say too old, Ken Bradshaw commands respect with his fearlessness and fearsome temper. Mark Foo is the new kid on the block. Icon of the younger generation, this photogenic Chinese-American wows the crowds with his lightning repertoire of cool moves. One perfect day at Sunset Beach, Foo audaciously steals a wave from under Bradshaw's nose, sparking a bitter feud that is to last for over ten years and end in tragedy.

Recensioner i media

'A classic tale of sporting rivalry' Observer 'The tales are gripping, Foo's vainglorious final expedition among them. Surfing emerges as a dangerous, solitary and potential fatal obsession' Daily Telegraph 'Martin brilliantly utilises the conflict between an old-school Texan and a cocky young Chinese-American to explore everything from the commercialisation of pro-surfing to a foolproof strategy for seducing Brazilian women' Arena 'Martin's fluid prose perfectly befits his subject ... sweeps the reader along like one of the awesome incoming walls of water at Waimea Bay ... a fascinating glimpse into obsession' Independent
