Kook's Guide to Surfing, 2nd edition

Ultimate Surfing Instruction Manual


Anyone can surf. Most people don't, mainly because they believe that riding waves is difficult and dangerous. It's not. Learning to surf can be the most enjoyable and memorable experience of your life. The Kook's Guide to Surfing demystifies walking on water and illustrates the steps toward a simple and safe, yet electrifying, experience. From your first wave to your last, The Kook's Guide shows the way. Jason Borte's informative and witty writing and the informative illustrations can make a non-kook out of you in no time.

From preparation, to learning the basics, etiquette, waves, boards, manoeuvres, competition, and much more, Jason Borte delves into all the fundamentals, constantly keeping the emphasis where it belongs - on "fun". The adventure is humorous, entertaining and chock full of the sort of information one could only obtain through decades in the water.

This is the second edition of The Kook's Guide to Surfing which was printed with updates at the end of 2011, following the sell-out of the 2010 1st edition.

Jason Borte is a lifelong surfer and former professional champion. He wrote Pipe Dreams: A Surfer's Journey and co-authored Pipeline: Deep Inside the World 's Most Respected Wave. His articles have been published around the world and in The Best of Surfer Magazine. He founded The Surf School in 1997 and has taught thousands of people to ride waves. He lives in Virginia Beach on the US East Coast.
