Overview

Candid, self-deprecating, and absolutely unique, professional surfer Mick Fanning reveals his life story while imparting plenty of practical surfing advice aimed to help young surfers—or "grommets"—achieve their dreams
 
The Grommets' Edition of Mick Fanning's bestselling biography Surf for Your Life is the ultimate grom's glimpse into the life of a two-time world champion surfer and an unrivaled guide to living and breathing the surf life. In his own words, Mick tells his story of overcoming the odds to become one of the best surfers in the world and drops pearls of wisdom gained from his life on and off the tour. Throughout the book, there are also travel and surfing tips for young children and budding surfers—from cut backs to bottom turns, deep carves to scoring tubes,  surf safety to board shapes, and the difference between a three-fin thruster and a seven-foot gun. If it's important to groms, it's in this book. Also included is a section on three-time women's world champ, Stephanie Gilmore.
