Never again confuse your tails with your rails, your SUPs with your ASPs, your shapers with your sprayers, or localism with a friendly welcome. Bask in the admiration of your fellow enthusiasts as you reminisce joyfully about those moments watching friends "going over the falls," and pronounce confidently about the exact location of the Ampullae of Lorenzini. (That particular morsel of knowledge could save you from becoming shark food). DON'T SHOUT when surfing. No one likes a shouter. Surfing is being at one with Nature; it is like riding on God's soul. The only sound should be that of breaking surf. On the other hand, no one likes a hippy either. DON'T SAY "I'm not kidding, dude. I once rode a Great White most of the way down the Pororoca."… (plus d'informations)

As someone who grew up in California and knew enough of the surfer life to get by, I though this would be a funny thing to see what they got right and wrong. But I found myself actually learning a lot of stuff that I could bring up in conversations with my surfing sisters, who actually bought it! I was able to use the language, and "judge" different surfer's techniques without them picking up a thing, a success in my mind. The one complaint I have is they kept saying the term "swallow tail boards" which I had never heard of. And anyone who says that will definitely be caught as a bluffer, the boards with an inverted "V" shape are called fishtails, other than that it was such an enjoyable read! ( )

This guide is righteous. It will tell you everything you could possibly need to, want to, or not want to know about surfing, in short order. It hold a lot of information on all aspects of surfing, from sharks to boards to history to what to wear. I appreciated the tone of the guide, but it is not for everyone. It is rather irreverent, a bit haughty. I suppose it would appeal to sarcastic sorts. If you want to hack your way into the surfing world or not seem like a complete idiot your first time out, this is a handy guide.

The publisher sent me an eBook copy to review. It will not open with any program I have. The publisher is not responsive and LibraryThing insists I have to review it. I am unable to review the content, but I would have to recommend NOT doing business with the publisher ( )

The Bluffer's guide to Surfing is a (very) short summary of surfing. It dispenses with the 'hows' and 'whys' and gives you just the bullet points that will supposedly get you "in" with surfers, although I suspect a Bluffer's Guide to Wine, etc, would be safer than a cheat book about a sport that can kill you. I would not feel comfortable talking about surfing if this was my only information on the topic, but all the main points were there. I loved the humor, and the breezy writing style was perfect for the topic. There were a few places that could have done with pictures, diagrams, or just an illustration or two, but that tiny complaint aside, this was a fun book to read. ( )
