About this title


Good Things Love Water is the story of surfing as told by a sea of different voices. The first waves ever ridden at Waimea Bay by Greg Noll, Mike Stange, and Mickey Munoz; Phil Edwards' first trip to Hawaii at age 15, the world of Bob McTavish, a beloved car owned by a couple of unknown surfers, and 21 other short stores are woven together in a sometimes dramatic, sometimes hilarious, sometimes tragic account of surfing's rich history. Chris Ahrens lays bare the hearts of our heroes and surfers we have not encountered until now.

From the Author:

After 40 years of surfing and 25 years of writing about it, I realized that I had quite a selection of stories. While some of them were notes taken as a gremmie at the feet of his heros, others were about unknown surfers, ordinary people in sometimes extraordinary circumstances. In hindsight, the stories aren't really about surfing, but about the characters who inhabit societies' corners. That's why this book has been enjoyed by surfers and non-surfers alike. Joyrides is Ahrens' second volume of surf stories, and a third volume, Kelea's Gift, will be avaliable in the Spring of 2001.
