"Extreme Surf" illustrates the most extreme surfing behavior. It explores the candidates for the world's gnarliest wave and the fastest.

It journeys up the Amazon to reveal the fearsome Pororoca and travels to England for a surf ride that can last over an hour and where the major hazards are dead sheep, trees, and old refrigerators.

It also includes the giant breaks of the surfing world: Jaws, Dungeons, Cyclops, Shiptern Bluff and Cortes Bank, and reveals the most feared waves from Northern California to Tahiti.

Featuring photographs by a dozen of the world's best surf photographers, and comments and opinions from surfing experts such as Dr. A. Garrett Lisi, Laird Hamilton, and Kelly Slater, "Extreme Surf" shows the lengths that some people will go for the ultimate surfing experience.
