Summary: Exhilarating and funny, this memoir of a quest for the perfect wave includes a fascinating outsiders' view of America, as well as an account of a rich friendship Two childhood friends from small-town Wales meet in Miami for a summer road trip they've always dreamed of--to chase the swell of a hurricane all the way up the East Coast in search of once-in-a-lifetime surf. As they follow Hurricane Dean, they also embark on a hilarious journey of self-discovery and a travel experience like no other. Mixing the humor of "Sideways" with the extreme conditions of "The Perfect Storm," this quirky travelogue is destined to become a cult classic.
