After the ruin of California’s coastline in the 20th century, ragged bands of dispirited surfers began migrating down the Baja highway in search of a lifestyle they couldn’t find north of the border anymore. In this humorous and colorful chronicle, Steve Sorensen, a surf refugee who made that journey, describes what the expat surfers found: an alien landscape, a strange culture, and spectacular waves. For the benefit of those mojados who might follow, Sorensen offers his experience in surviving the challenges of Baja life, including: exorcising demons while surfing alone, finding a cheap colonoscopy in the barrio, identifying and removing false apparitions—plus, a guide to the Baja surfer’s essential pilgrimage to Mt. Rushmore, South Dakota. “A fantastic and motivational book.... Sometimes I had tears from laughing.” — Mike Doyle, legendary surfer and author of Morning Glass
