"No matter what, Fin, make sure you have good style. Get your style right and everything else will become a natural extension. Then, one day, you’ll find a sizey repertoire of moves at your disposal, all activated with the sharpness of a butcher’s blade, the control of a gymnast and the accuracy of Carter aiming for the two posts."
Mike is Fin’s best friend, his surfing coach and mentor, the older brother he never had. Together they ride the swells and share adventure, excitement, mateship and solidarity. Then Mike is killed in a car accident, and Fin is devastated. How can he recover from the loss and rejoin the real world? And will he ever be able to surf again?
Aaron Topp’s first novel takes the reader inside the waves and into the head of a young man struggling to reach the surface and the light.
