Surfer’s Code: 12 Simple Lessons for Riding Through Life

By Shaun Tomson (with Patrick Moser)

Gibbs Smith Publisher

Some of us carry around a small credit-cardsized piece of plastic emblazoned with 1977 World Champion Shaun Tomson’s dozen commandments,
titled “A Surfer’s Code.” Now those “pieces of wisdom”, which Shaun gleaned over his 40-plus years of surfing, have been expanded into a book replete with personal anecdotes, philosophical and practical instruction, and a tasteful assemblage of photos, most of Tomson himself. It’s a good read, which includes a poignant Epilogue by Shaun and his wife Carla on the recent death of their only child, Mathew. The 15-year-old’s school essay, “Becoming a Man”, which he read to his father just an hour before he died, is included. – DK
