David Flanagan came from a long line of seafarers and thought learning to surf would be easy, despite the fact he was scared of the ocean and fast approaching middle age. As a journalist living in an island community, he had intended to write a light-hearted account of his progress towards surfing nirvana, but instead found himself facing danger, doubt and the spectre of childhood bereavement in an often wild and unwelcoming sea. Meanwhile on land, and back riding a skateboard after a 30-year-gap, David found himself facing bemusement, ridicule and the wrath of the medical profession. But his decision to turn back the clock to the 1970s would also prove remarkably life changing and, occasionally, utterly catastrophic. Warm, funny, touching and honest - with a strong dose of adrenalin - Board explores loss, ego, fear and fatherhood, charting a quest for inner peace against a backdrop of thundering Atlantic waves. At its heart, Board is an inspiring story about accepting some limitations and overcoming others, while completely ignoring common sense and social convention.

About the Author:

David Flanagan is an award-winning journalist and writer based in the Orkney Islands, Scotland. Born, raised and educated in Edinburgh, he studied journalism in the city and worked briefly for the Edinburgh Evening News before deciding daily newspapers weren't really his thing. After returning to his ancestral home of Orkney in 1990, he spent three years as a reporter with local weekly newspaper, The Orcadian, before moving into public relations work. He's been freelance since 2002, producing news and feature articles for a wide variety of publications, in addition to undertaking copywriting projects for clients throughout the UK. He's occasionally appeared on TV and once managed to skateboard on camera while delivering a news report. When not surfing or skateboarding badly, he enjoys walking in the Scottish mountains, lifting weights and training in martial arts. He also has a passion for action movies and cries when watching Rocky.
