Miles Masterson Teaches Everyone How to Surf

masterson_ai.jpgMiles MastersonSurfing is no longer a sport just for boys with long hair. More and more people are taking it up – girls, adults and business folk wanting an adrenalin rush after a stressful day.

In How to Surf Miles Masterson shows the beginner exactly how to get going with the basics of the sport. Step-by-step instructions and clear illustrations take the mystery out of this exacting sport. This helpful text has been written with South African conditions in mind.

About the author

Miles Masterson has been surfing for 25 years. He has travelled the world in pursuit of the perfect wave and has been writing about surfing and travelling. He co-founded Blunt Magazine, a youth magazine that covers surfing and related sports.

He lives in Hout Bay (where he can keep one eye on the sea) with his wife Megan and his surf dog, Apollo.

    Calling Helen, Alex, Karina, Sven. If you could go horseriding last week, what about surfing next week?

    Careful what you pray for, Liesl: we'll end up as the Blogger Bungee-Jumpers at this rate.

    *thinks* now kayaking, that's definitely a possibility...

    I'd prefer to stick to tea at the BL. Surfing looks great on other people, but it is 100 sizes too big for me (Remember that video-link Sven sent last week - I almost fainted watching it!). Bungee jumping is totally out of the question and kayaking, after Anne Fadiman's essay about it in At Small and At Large, has become very scary. But Liesl & Helen, I will come and watch you do both.

    And a good reminder, Karina, that the Cape Town bloggers' tea meeting will be at the Book Lounge this coming Monday at 6pm. Please come along if you're in the area -- no extreme sports required.
