Summary

The best and newest big-wave surfing stories from the sport's insiders More than a decade ago, John Long published his now-classic The Big Drop,an unprecedented and visually stunning look at that most attention-grabbing category of images and stories--surfers hurtling down titanic walls of water. Since then, big-wave surfing, which ranks with the most exciting of adventure sports, has exploded in popularity. Now, Long and former surfing pro Sam George provide a worthy sequel for a new generation of surfers, The Big Juice. A powerful, contemporary look at the men and women who live and breathe for the next big wave and the bigger, more dangerous challenge, The Big Juicepresents a rich history of characters, controversies, heroism, humor, and tragedy define the sport. A vein of true grit runs through the cutting-edge athletes who challenge these monster waves, and that same vein can be found in this outstanding collection of more than twenty stories illustrated by jaw-dropping photographs.
