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 Hurricane Dean all the way up the US East Coast in search of once-in-a-lifetime surf. They embark on a hilarious journey of self-discovery and a travel experience like no other.
Mixing the humour of Sideways with the extreme conditions of The Perfect Storm, this new book by one of the UK's favourite new travel/surfing writers is a quirky travelogue destined to become a cult classic.
