Finding the Break
A Surfer's Anthology
Surfing isn't merely a hobby. Sometimes it’s everything.
"Those fleeting moments are where surfing transforms from tangible to intrinsic. Where surfing becomes a part of who we are and makes us realize that what we’re doing isn’t just about dropping into waves with our friends but about something more." - Finding the Break
Finding the Break is a collection of six stories that show how the ocean and surfing can diminish negative emotions and increase positive ones. Fear, anger, sadness, and joy are revealed as the stories unfold and characters work to plaster the cracks formed from the weight of significant events that affect us all at some point in our lives.
These stories are about finding hope in hopeless situations and discovering ways to laugh when it feels like your world is crumbling apart. They're about life. And they’re about the way a wave feels under your board, and how that feeling can set you free.
These stories are about Finding the Break...to find your way back.
