"My arms and shoulders were on fire, and I was feeling lightheaded and numb. Every time I broke over a wave, there was another one outside. I was way past my second wind and my third, but I kept paddling, mechanically, flat on my board under the glare of the sun, white spots now sparking into my vision, breathing rapid and hollow, and still the waves kept coming, and the sounds of their cracking and curling overlaid the steady rumble behind me and-every once in a while, woven into the work of the sea-there was a shard of conversation . . . voices drifting through it all, coming from somewhere out in the kelp, like the music of my delirium . . . voices like spirits standing at the gates, the words fragmented, indecipherable, but forming in my hallucinating consciousness a recurring phrase: "TRESPASSERS WILL BE EATEN!'" - The Lost Coast: Stories from the Surf The Lost Coast: Stories from the Surf is a collection of eighteen stories that offer a rare and raw glimpse into surf life-from sliding into cold, stiff neoprene at 4 AM to experiencing the ecstasy of a curling cresting wall of water. With pacing that ranges from a swift smooth paddle to a gnarly ride, these stories-most of which have been published over the past thirty years-capture the spirit that gave rise to a culture of surf on the "sweet and ragged wild edge of beauty." "Drew Kampion is the only American surf writer who kept my interest during the period when I was World Champion-what everyone else was saying made me just want to look at the pictures. Drew's writing has always been an excellent barometer on the state of our tribe." - Nat Young, 1966 World Champion and four-time longboard champ Drew Kampion is a former editor of Surfer, Surfing, Wind Surf, and Wind Tracks magazines. He founded, edited, and published the award-winning Island Independent, and is the author of the best-selling titles Book of Waves and Stoked! A History of Surf Culture. Drew continues to write for magazines dedicated to the surfing life, as well as others. He is married with two children and lives on an island in Washington State. Jeff Petersen was raised and resides in northern California. He is an artist with an incredible amount of respect and love for the ocean and art; he feels lucky to combine these two interests in his work on The Lost Coast: Stories from the Surf. This is his first book.

Nat Young said it best:

Although his new one, "Greg Noll", is a doozey and a must-read, and "Stoked!" is the definitive historical record, "The Lost Coast" remains my favorite Kampion surf-book. Pick it up, go to virtually any of the stories, and you'll get a literate, occasionally profound take on The Life.

For surfers who have to wait out the winter, this book is a great way to stay stoked when it's too cold in the water. For folks with only a passing interest in surfing, these are well-written and very enjoyable stories, not one worth passing on.

loooooooove this book. it's a collection of short stories by different authors, many were originally published in surf mags in the 70's and more recent as well. i enjoyed the variety in writing styles and all the different perspectives on life and oceanic experiences. my favorites were "A wave in search of the perfect surfer," which is told from the perspective of the wave and speaks to the intimacy of connection between wave and surfer and "the lost coast," a surf journalist's sketchy adventure to the perfect but treacherous waves of the lost coast. great read, it definitely made me want to get in the water.

Perfect as a collection of short stories to read piecemeal; airports, airplanes, ....... Some are a bit dated or too much of a stylized viewpoint. Best when revealing personal experience.

wow, grew up surfing in the 70's I forgot how stoned people were back then . That was a painful exercise getting thru, but did bring back some memories .

Not a bad book. Consisting of a variety of "surfer's yarns" ranging from the ludicrious to the doubt-right dangerous. Each "yarn" is short & sharp, but some of them are a bit of a bore or just to in-depth to really enjoy. It is the type of book you can leave in the glovebox of the car and pull out to read while you're stopped off having a bite to eat between surf sessions.

The Lost Coast offers up a great selection of short stories. There is straight-ahead fiction here: Kampion's evocations of pre-shortboard-era California sessions are particulary vivid and imbued with the spirit of coming-of-age stoke. But there is much more. The styles and forms range to allegory, dystopian future ("Eyesight"), and creation myth. Kampion takes risks, and pulls them off. "Heart of Stone" centers on the creation and use of a traditional Hawaiian koa olo, spanning three generations at the turn of the 18th to the 19th centuries. "A Wave in Search of the Perfect Surfer" depicts the life of a North Pacific swell from the wave's point of view. Good stuff.
Drew Kampion is the pre-eminent surfing writer. As editor of Surfer Magazine in the tumultuous late '60s and contributing editor to Surfing Magazine in the '70s and '80s, Kampion was responsible for lyrical, truthful and decidedly insightful nonfiction and fiction writing in both magazines. No one can evoke the feeling of sliding down a green wall of water, or illustrate the lifestyle as Kampion can. He is the author of several books, including Stoked!, Waves and The Way of the Surfer. In Lost Coast Drew collects fiction pieces from previously published magazines and presents them with woodcut-like illustrations that enhance the volume. There is no one writing about surfing today who can draw on the past, look ahead to the future and offer the reader the exquisite joy of walking on water as Drew Kampion can. He is an enormous talent, not simply a "surfing writer."
