Its called Surfings Greatest Misadventures: Dropping In On The Unexpected (Casagrande Press) and editor Paul Diamond says he knows a wooly wave story when he hears it.
According to Diamond, one of the heaviest yarns in the book is that of the French surf teacher out with three Sri Lankan newbies right when the 2004 tsunami hit.
Diamond says the French waterman has to rescue his panicking students who dont listen to his instructions to paddle OUT to sea rather than in when the killer wave hits and later has to run four miles to find his marooned wife.
Diamond says theres lots of humorous stories, too, his favorite involving big-wave pro Brad Gerlach smoking pot and having paranoid delusions of being an Incan king.
