Vacations & Travel - - Armchair Travel - Phil Jar­ratt

Re­garded as one of the fore­most au­thor­i­ties on surf­ing, Phil Jar­ratt is an award-win­ning, high pro­file au­thor that has worked in surf pub­lish­ing for nearly 40 years. In this en­ter­tain­ing, per­sonal and warm mem­oir, Jar­ratt chron­i­cles his life and love of surf­ing, and surf cul­ture’s events, places and peo­ple around the world that fed his ob­ses­sion. His life­long pur­suit of the per­fect wave has placed him in the midst of some of the most ex­cit­ing mo­ments in surf­ing’s mod­ern his­tory, along­side some of the big­gest names in the sport and against a back­drop of in­cred­i­bly ex­otic lo­ca­tions, from Bali to Biar­ritz. De­signed and pub­lished as an il­lus­trated au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, it fea­tures pho­to­graphs from the au­thor’s own col­lec­tion, and plenty of de­bauch­ery, re­flec­tion and in­sight told with hu­mour, fear­less­ness and en­dear­ing mod­esty.
