1 Review
JOURNEY AFAR... with 20-year-old surfer, explorer, and writer ALEX GOULD in the Adventure of a Lifetime--covering 66,000 kilometers in 8 months of non-stop adrenaline. Dance to furious drumbeats in isolated West African coastal villages, venture to beautiful and remote desert islands in the South Pacific, and explore Buddhist temples and some of the world's most stunning mountain scenery in East Asia. Step into a new pair of shoes and reexamine your own culture with the clairvoyance only an outsider can possess. Feel the rush of life on the edge in harrowing accounts of mountaineering, motorcycling, diving, and surfing; lose yourself amidst tales of beauty, romance, and adventure. Go on: wax your board, paddle out, and FEEL THE STOKE. From Senegal's picture-perfect reef breaks to Tahiti's terrifying Teahupo'o, the planet's most dangerous wave...from tube-riding in Southern Taiwan to nose-riding with those infamous longboarders in the North... Life just doesn't get any better than this.
