Books Info:

Searching for Groundswell free pdf Simply put, New Zealand is a great place to be a surfer. In Searching for Groundswell, Paul Hersey takes the ultimate surfing road trip, looking to connect with the best beach breaks, points and reefs along the 15,000 kilometres of coastline that surround New Zealand. He journeys to Dunedin, the Catlins, Christchurch, Kaikoura, the West Coast, Wellington, Taranaki, Raglan, Tauranga, East Cape, Gisborne and Auckland before returning to his surfing roots in Northland. Paul discovers that the sleepy surf communities of his youth are now vibrant coastal resorts, many with shopping malls and suburban developments lining the shore. The essential thrill of catching a wave is exactly the same but a burgeoning surf industry has meant considerable change in the culture of surfing in New Zealand. Part meditation, part documentary: this book celebrates surfing and explores the special relationship surfers have with the sea.
