"Surfing the Himalayas" is the engaging story of a young American snowboarder who travels to the Himalayas seeking the ultimate high -- but surfs into an experience more transcendent than he could have ever imagined. In an accident of karmic destiny, the young man plows into a wizened Buddhist monk named Master Fwap who takes him on as a spiritual apprentice. Using snowboarding as a path to enlightenment, the charming and learned Master Fwap shows how, by freeing the mind and challenging the soul, one can master any mountain -- and master oneself.
