Slow start but a great book, worth the read!

The book started off slow for me the book started off slow for me. I had the restart it three times, but I'm glad I did.

Great story teller

This is a great story that keeps you thinking beyond just the story but about life. The only draw back is the narrator just totally destroys the Hawaiian words and Hawaiian place names that you cannot even recognize what he is talking about. Should at least practiced.

The Wrong Narrator

Not a terrible narration, just the wrong guy to do a Gerry Lopez book. Gerry should have read it.

Inside view of the early pro surf world

Gerry’s stories were entertaining and well articulated. I laughed out loud listening to some of his personal accounts. Highly recommended.

When my idol talks, this surfer listens...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, The author Gerry Lopez knows what he writes about.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed Gerry's philosophy and the surfing history and hearing the stories of people who were legends in the waters where I grew up.

What aspect of Danny Campbell’s performance would you have changed?

Great Narrator but read some Hawaiian place names beyond recognition. He could've used some native input there.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, Gerry describes letting go and finding the strength he needed in that process. Any help to get me through near drownings I'm paying attention to.

Any additional comments?

After listening to Over 100 audio-books this was the first one I was lead to review. I hope I can spend some time with Gerry Lopez and absorb some of his wisdom.
With Aloha, Patrick Ching

Wonderful Surf Stories

Great stories told by a great story teller. Lopez's humour shines through wrapped in a large dollop of surf wisdom.

You don't need to be a surfer to enjoy it, but if you are, you'll find yourself nodding and smiling as you appreciate that even the greatest go through the same emotions in the water as the rest of us.

I loved it!

Mr. Pipeline talks story 🤙🏽

I absolutely loved listening to this audiobook, especially hearing Gerry mention people I know and surf spots I'm familiar with.

Anyone who surfs, has an interest in surfing or is looking for inspiration will enjoy this book.
