Book by brand ambassador Simon Short.
The Average Surfer's Guide to Travel, Waves and Progression explores the metaphysical effects of surfing, the biological effects of surfing and how the sport, percolated into a lifestyle opens us up to travel, adventure, community and a true belonging.
The book takes a unique approach by forgetting the glamour of professional surfing and telling a story of hard lessons learned by an average, everyday surfer.

The book takes us into situations that many are familiar with, but few share. Short bravely shares details from his darker days suffering depression and his efforts to forge a false identity as a law enforcement officer in America. Before leaving it all behind and starting a new life after learning some valuable lessons during a gunfight in the California desert.
The Average Surfer's Guide takes us on a journey from dark to light and teaches us how to live a true, balanced life that is authentic to who we are and what makes us happy. Namely, Surfing.
