-Book Life Prize

This book is an ode to the love and art of surfing. It elevates the manner and style in which surfing is intertwined with life. Lessons learned in the soup can be taken anywhere. I have personally applied these lessons to my business practices, my relationship, and my overall outlook on life. Surfing has given me the various traits everyone can learn from and that is being faithful, honest, and committed to everything you love.
