Surf Is Where You Find It (Patagonia)
By Gerry Lopez; Foreword by Steve Pezman

Written by one of the most revered surfers of his generation, Surf Is Where You Find It is a collection of stories about lessons learned during a lifetime of surfing. Originally published in 2008, Surf Is Where You Find It preserves memories of surf eras gone by, and commemorates those who helped shape the surfing world of today. Now, seven years and more than 25,000 copies sold later, Patagonia re-launches the surfing classic in a fully revised and expanded edition. Three times as many photos, many of them never-before-seen shots from Gerry Lopez’s personal albums, and 38 short stories (including seven new ones) spotlight those who have been influential in the sport—surfing any time, anywhere, and in any way. An innovator in stand up paddle, Lopez also shares his stories about pioneering that sport.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The saying goes, “the second best thing about surfing is talking about it afterward.” Gerry Lopez, one of the most revered surfers of all of time, brings readers into the intimately personal sport with Surf Is Where You Find It, a collection of stories that recount harrowing waves, epic wipeouts, and heroes encountered over a lifetime of surfing.

From growing up in Hawaii in the ’50s and ’60s, to finding the tube in the early days at Pipeline, to pioneering legendary spots like Uluwatu and G-Land in Indonesia, Lopez has traveled for surf the world over. But for him, it is the people that stood out the most. Originally published in 2008, Surf Is Where You Find It preserves memories of surf eras gone by, and commemorates those who helped shape the surfing world of today.

Now, seven years and more than 25,000 copies sold later, Patagonia is re-launching the surfing classic in a fully revised and expanded edition. Three times as many photos, many of them never-before-seen shots from Lopez’s personal collection, and 38 short stories (including seven new ones) spotlight those who have been influential in the sport—surfing any time, anywhere, and in any way. An innovator in stand up paddle, one of the fastest growing water sports in the world, Lopez also shares his stories about pioneering that sport.
