My surf poetry collection, Turn Your Back on the Shore, touches on everything from alienation, conservation, and environmentalism to the joyful psyche and practice of wave-riding.
This book presents a sensual wordscape that reflects the beat and rhythm of the ocean. It is accessible poetry that reflects my half-century among the breakers.
Humorous and satirical with a tinge of the philosophical, this surf poetry collection will take surfers and non-surfers alike away from our fast-paced civilization and into the watery wilds.
“These poems are passionate and fun. If you are drawn to the ocean, you will love this book. If you aren’t, these poems will help you understand those who are.”–Michael Harrington
