The continuation of the national phenomena "Surfing the Himalayas" takes the crack American snowboarder down the mountain again, this time around with greater spiritual enlightenment he gains through experience (the greatest teacher of all). As our snowboarder continues his lessons of enlightenment with Master Fwap, he also encounters earthly love in the form of a beautiful and wise Danish woman. A paradox ensues and a mystery is set forth, the mystery of "the missing dimension." The mystery must be understood and solved before our snowboarder can comprehend the next levels of Buddhist lessons. Along the way, a wise, mysterious oracle of Nepal introduces our hero to Tibetan tantric texts that become crucial in solving this riddle. Snowboarding once again becomes the metaphor for maneuvering one's self through the trials and tribulations of real life. By learning to concentrate, meditate, and understand, the sport of life can be easily mastered. About the author: Besides being a world-class snowboarder and black belt in martial arts, Frederick Lenz was an author, teacher of meditation and spirituality, music producer and active participant in several advanced technology companies. A Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude graduate of the University of Connecticut, he received a Ph.D. in English literature from the State University of Stony Brook. He lived in California and New York.

Review:
Once again Frederick Lenz (author of the bestselling Surfing the Himalayas) uses snowboarding as the metaphor for maneuvering through the ice and powder of life. Our snowboarding hero must solve the spiritual riddle of "the missing dimension" before he can reach the next level of enlightenment. Paradoxes, Bruce Lee movies, Tibetan tantric texts, and a love affair with a Danish woman offer the puzzling clues and exotic visuals.
