The Wave, a book review

Recently I read "The Wave" by Susan Casey.  I liked it, being a surfer helps but this is a good read.  Casey easily weaves the story of big wave riders and their search for huge ridable waves into a larger picture of what makes gigantic waves.  Interesting science, dudes doing really crazy shit and surviving, a compelling story for sure.  I loved the part about this sketchy spot in Alaska that gets pounded by 300 foot waves.  I say read it.

Dropping in to this?  WOW!

The main big wave rider Casey writes about is Laird Hamilton.  Watch the wave he catch's it is INSANE!
