At age thirty-four, life for author Nancy Kruithof O’Farrell already seemed futile, and she was convinced she would die by suicide. But God’s grace intervened, and O’Farrell embarked on a journey of healing. In Endless Waves: A Story of Grace, she shares her life story and reveals the details of her struggles. Through narrative, journal entries, counselor’s notes, poems and scriptures, and waves of grace, this memoir tells more than a story of abuse, addiction, and relationship issues. It shares the specific, detailed steps that aided O’Farrell’s healing. She shares how she was redeemed by God’s power and love, and she offers encouragement for others who face the same challenges. Praise for Endless Waves: A Story of Grace “It’s amazing that a woman so filled with shame and self-loathing since childhood, whose only safety from horrific sexual abuse and pastoral exploitation was strong walls of self-protection, could step from behind that barricade and bare her soul. Nancy O’Farrell does so with grace, honesty, and eloquence ... The story is heartbreaking and uplifting. Clearly, God continued to pursue this wounded, desperate woman and never stopped moving her toward healing. God showered her with endless waves.” —Marnie Ferree, Author, No Stones: Women Redeemed From Sexual Addictions; Director, Bethesda Workshops, Nashville, Tennessee

He and another doctor, Doctor Luther, who also rides waves, therapeutically treat members of the group of surfers. But it is mostly Stoney, who is the more serious case. Their wave riding continues. This book might be considered one of those one reads and puts on the shelf. Some parts are cosmological.

Surfing today evokes many things: thundering waves, warm beaches, bikinis and lifeguards, and carefree pleasure. But is the story of surfing really as simple as popular culture suggests? In this first international political history of the sport, Scott Laderman shows that while wave riding is indeed capable of stimulating tremendous pleasure, its globalization went hand in hand with the blood and repression of the long twentieth century. Emerging as an imperial instrument in post-annexation Hawaii, spawning a form of tourism that conquered the littoral Third World, tracing the struggle against South African apartheid, and employed as a diplomatic weapon in America's Cold War arsenal, the saga of modern surfing is only partially captured by Gidget, the Beach Boys, and the film Blue Crush. From nineteenth-century American empire-building in the Pacific to the low-wage labor of the surf industry today, Laderman argues that surfing in fact closely mirrored American foreign relations. Yet despite its less-than-golden past, the sport continues to captivate people worldwide. Whether in El Salvador or Indonesia or points between, the modern history of this cherished pastime is hardly an uncomplicated story of beachside bliss. Sometimes messy, occasionally contentious, but never dull, surfing offers us a whole new way of viewing our globalized world.

Surfing, Jack London remarked, is “a royal sport for the natural kings of earth.” The greatest of those natural kings grant readers an audience in this glorious celebration of the world’s best surfers. Part exquisite picture book and travelogue to the top of the world, part biography and reference guidebook, Legends of Surfing profiles one hundred great surfers, men and women, from throughout the world. In life stories, and in exclusive interviews--which only the surfing icon Duke Boyd could have pulled off--stellar surfers such as Wayne Bartholomew, Tom Curren, Andy and Bruce Irons, Duke Kahanamoku, Dave Kalama, Gerry Lopez, Rob Machado, Mark Occhilupo, and Kelly Slater give us a rare firsthand look at what it’s like, in this crowded world, to “seek and find the perfect day, the perfect wave, and be alone with the surf and his thoughts.” (John Severson, Surfer magazine, 1960)

Living in an old, unheated T25 campervan for fourteen months, including the coldest winter for thirty years, Jonathan Bennett travelled clockwise round Britain, surfing every beach he could catch a wave. From the Isle of Harris to the Lizard Peninsula, from Orkney to Anglesey, from Sandwood Bay to Sussex, he shared the waves with seals, sewage and fellow surfers, meeting friendly and not-so-friendly locals, often alone and miles from civilisation. Without going near a campsite, he slept with the sound of the waves whispering in his ears.
