Picked up a couple new ones. Welcome To Paradise, Now Go To Hell. A true story of violence, corruption, and the soul of surfing. Looks good alot of short stories. The other one is Barbarian Days A Surfing Life. Cover says New York Times Bestseller don't know if that means anything.

Welcome to Paradise is a very good book- has significantly changed my approach to not just paddling out in Maui, but also how I interact on land with true Hawaiians. My rule when traveling is 'never piss on the locals', but there is a lot here for a great read as well as those F***ing haoles (like me) who want to do my thing without stepping on anyone's toes.
I just read Barbarian Days on a trip to Pacific Panama 2 weeks ago- I thought very long and rambling with no lesson by the end.
Surfing's Great Misadventures is also a good read-

Talking about surf book, a must have for surfer who like surfinghistory is the 1935 "HAWAIIAN SURFBOARD" .
Written by one of the most important man in surfing Mr TOM BLAKE.
Said to be the FIRST book ever about surfing !
The very few books remaining are truly pieces of history, I'm the happy owner of this one.
If you don t know the man , his personal story, and his influence on "modern surfing" google video his name, have a sit, close the door, take a beer and open your eyes and ears;-))
