Masters World Champion Tandem Surfer Bear Woznick
brings us a powerful and entertaining spiritual primer that uses surfing
as a metaphor for questing for intimacy with God
DEEP IN THE WAVE
By BEAR WOZNICK with Lou Aronica
|A magnificent, life-changing book.”
—Anthony DeStefano, New York Times bestselling author of A Travel Guide to Heaven
“Bear shares his love for his greatest passion, the ocean, with all those he meets and in the pages of this book. His enthusiasm for life is infectious and his love of the ocean undeniable.”
—Chuck Inman, two-time tandem surfing world champion
In this intimate portrayal of the relationship between surfing and the soul, Bear Woznick shares his deep knowledge of the sport on every page along with his spiritual vision.
Readers will be captivated by all the inside surfing information, from learning how a surfboard is made to accompanying the author as he describes catching a monster wave and riding for his life. Bear’s portrayal of the beauty and power of the ocean is an inspiring one that truly showcases the profound meaning surfing has had on his life. Instead of standing on the shore with our toes in the surf, Bear takes us on the board – to the deep water – to watch and wait – and, if need be, to paddle hard to survive.
The spiritual journey described in DEEP IN THE WAVE is as exciting as the surfing and Bear keeps readers engaged every step of the way. As Bear says, surfers take risks “going deep” into a big wave and we can all “go deep” spiritually on our path to God.
