Item Description...
This is the first book about surfing ever written by a philosopher. The author, a 70-year-old surfanatic, has been Professor of Philosophy at Boston College for over 40 years and has written 50 other books on philosophy, religion, and culture. But compared to this one, the others are nothing but straw.
It gives ten compelling existential. reasons why everyone should surf: reasons from the great philosophers: Moses, Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Jesus, Machiavelli, Freud, and George Morey. It explains how surfing is the easiest and most delightful way in the world to attain what you most deeply long for, for it can make you good, mystical, peaceful, wise, heavenly, happy, sexy, and even rich.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Title and concept/idea ripped off  Dec 5, 2008
Was looking for a specific surfing book when I stumbled across this title, conveniently the title of the book as well as the concept belonged to someone else. When I looked at the published date (July 2008) it became obvious that this was lifted from an online surfing group one time member who had in fact begun a book on surfing over a couple years ago with the same title and had shared this title with a certain online surfing community. The premise of the book is identical. Unfortunately, the ORIGINAL author/idea generator had not yet put a copyright on this, so they are screwed, but it should be known to all who think about buying this book that this guy is cashing in on someone elses exact title/description etc. This isn't/wasn't his original idea.

A surfing conundrum  Aug 30, 2008
This book is very well-written and contains some real spiritual and philosophical gems.

However, the author reveals towards the back of the book that he is a bodyboarder and not a stand-up surfer. The author argues that bodyboarding is closer to surfing a wave than stand-up surfing. Is bodyboarding really "surfing?" This is the question that the reader must decide for themselves.

Regardless, the book is an enjoyable read to anyone interested in the spiritual, cerebral, and emotional states of surfing.
A Fun Read, Not especially philosophical but  Jun 29, 2008
I am a California Standup surfer. Dr. Kreeft is one of the primary reasons I am Roman Catholic. I listen to a MP3 of one of his lectures downloaded from almost every lunchtime business day.
Dr. Kreeft has a lot of fun writing this book. I enjoyed reading it. It is not a philosophy book. For that read Philosophy of Jesus or The Sea Within. However, if you surf, love the ocean, know God you will enjoy this book.
As a Californian and as a Standup surfer there are issues between me and Dr. Kreeft that I am sure will be ironed out through God's grace at our Purgatory.
