“ LOOMS ON THE HORIZON LIKE A HURRICANE IN A SUMMER WITHOUT WAVES”
A wondrous, uproarious, and surprisingly informative account of a year spent surfing, Caught Inside marks the arrival of an exuberant new voice of the outdoors.
This remarkable narrative of Daniel Duane’s life on the water is enhanced by good-humored explanations of the physics of wave dynamics, the intricate art of surfboard design, and lyrical, sharp-eyed descriptions of the flora and fauna of the Pacific wilderness.
From Captain Cook and Mark Twain to Robinson Jeffers and Jack London, from portraits of famous ( and infamous) surfers to an analysis of Gideget’s perverse significance.
Duane expertly uncovers the myths and symbols bound up in one of our most vibrant and recognizably American subjects.
