Ask any surfer and he'll say there's more to the sport of surfing than riding waves--it's a lifestyle, a state of mind, the ultimate expression of freedom and individuality.

Overview

Ask any surfer and he'll say there's more to the sport of surfing than riding waves--it's a lifestyle, a state of mind, the ultimate expression of freedom and individuality. Many even go so far to define it as a sub-culture. One thing is for certain, no matter what your view, there's no doubt that surfing has a unique, interesting, and often times hilarious language associated with it. With standard terms like "Dude" enduring for decades, to the more modern variation "Bruddah Man," it continues to evolve with every generation.

Compiled from Riptionary.com, his database of terms submitted by surfers from points around the world, Scott A. Mathews, himself an avid surfer for many years, captures some of the most interesting, entertaining and informative entries sent to his website in Riptionary.

Riptionary offers unique, interesting and informative insight into the sport of surfing as it takes you on an entertaining heuristic journey one word at a time through the language that is and defines surfing.

Written in a casual, yet engaging manner, Riptionary gives you an entertaining, informative and uniquely insightful look into the sport of surfing.

I've surfed for years and hadn't heard some of these. The Grom crop of today is off the hook. It certainly isn't a serious book, but reading what the new generation of surfer is saying makes for some good laughs. I say snag it for a good chuckle if nothing else.

This book is filled with incorrect definitions. If I could give it less than 1 star, I would. Don't buy it!

Fun, easy to read...definately not a serious novel, but full of information any Grom (learned that one in the book) can use.
