Publisher's Summary

A wondrous, uproarious, and surprisingly informative account of a year spend surfing, Caught Inside marks the arrival of an exuberant new voice of the outdoors. This remarkable narrative of Daniel Duane’s life on the water is enhanced by good-humored explanations of the physics of wave dynamics, the intricate art of surfboard design, and lyrical, sharp-eyed descriptions of the flora and fauna of the Pacific wilderness. From Captain Cook and Mark Twain to Robinson Jeffers and Jack London, from portraits of famous (and infamous) surfers to an analysis of Gidget’s perverse significance, Duane expertly uncovers the myths and symbols bound up in one of our most vibrant and recognizably American subjects.

guy is an amateur surfer, birder, rock climber

Storyline was anecdotal, uneventful and left open ended. Not a whole lot of shop talk about surfing. no real discernible goals or driving force to the memoir....basically you could sum this entire book up in about 10 minutes.

started to find the writing overdone and bogged down with complex vocabulary and "poignant" observations.

overall kook was a better read, still looking for the great American surfing book though......maybe an Aussie will write it.
