"Any surfer will tell you with unquestionable passion that surfing is the only life there is-the rest is just fill-in between one swell and the next. Stoked perfectly captures the spirit of this lifestyle that resolves around the whims of the sea." - Gerry Lopez, Pipeline Master.
"Drew Kampion is a master at decoding the wonderful machinations of that tribe of watermen and waterwomen called surfers, who live for the ride. Stoked is the anthem of their lifestyle and their dance." - Steve Pezman, publisher of The Surfer's Journal
"Drew mixes his micro/macro surf soup, entertaining us with perceptions and word artistry. He always leaves you with a bigger picture and provides a great ride getting there." - John Severson, artist and found of Surfer magazine
"Witty, incisive, and original. No one ever had a better perspective on the unique surfing life we all love than Drew Kampion. This is a fascinating and beautiful book." - Greg MacGillivray, filmmaker, director of Five Summer Stories, The Living Sea, and Everest.
"Stoked is fun and accurate! If anyone is qualified to write this book, it's Drew Kampion. Drew was an authority 25 years ago, and he still is today." - Jeff Hakman, Mr. Sunset
