Summary
Fed up with suburban teenage life, Jaimal Yogis ran off to Hawaii with little more than a copy of Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha and enough cash for a surfboard. His journey is a coming-of-age saga that takes him from communes to monasteries and the icy New York shore. Equal parts spiritual memoir and surfer's tale, this is a chronicle of finding meditative focus in the barrel of a wave and eternal truth in the great salty blue
Summary
Chronicles the author's teenage journey to Hawaii, where he applied the principles of Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha to his surfing adventures, an effort that eventually took him to the shores of New York and the monasteries of France in search of a better understanding of the spiritual nature of the sport.
