Overview

In a story for anyone who has ever dreamed of an alternative to the busy, micro-scheduled existence of work, school, shopping, and housework, surf writer Tim Baker and his family grab their surfboards and hit the open road
 All surfers dream of shedding responsibilities and answering the siren song of the ocean swells, though for most, it is an ideal that recedes as family, career, and provider commitments overwhelm the wanderlust of youth. But surf writer Tim Baker decided to shelve the worldly pressures, pack up the family and a few trusty surfboards, and take a Great Australian surfing road trip. Inspired by the dreams of his youth, and in the face of looming middle-age, Baker and his wife Kirsten started in January 2011 from their home in Queensland, heading south down the east coast of Australia. Over the next six to eight months, they circumnavigated the country, as Baker documents the state of surf culture and the coastline, and the array of colorful characters encountered along the way. This is a lively, colorful handbook on how to trade your life for another variety, the delights and dangers that lay in wait for those who dare to chase their dreams, and how a family of four survive six months on the road in the close quarters of a four-wheel drive and a caravan.
