Publisher Description

“A sun-drenched, blue-tinted collage of surfing snapshots” – Andy Martin, author of 'Walking on Water'

Why do surfers ride waves? Surprisingly, it is not always just for the thrill or the excitement: at a deeper level, surfing can imprint itself on consciousness, feeding the wave rider with intense images and sensations – thereby generating moments in memory that last a lifetime, via the ocean’s mirror.

In 'Between the Moon and the Fire', Sebastian Kevany describes more than one hundred moments of wave-riding around and across the globe, from Ireland to Indonesia. He explores each episode to identify exactly what made it stand out and endure: what was the unique combination of circumstances and events that brought the surfer to that moment – often, just a few seconds long – in that time and place?

From parties to partners-in-crime, from health to habit and from espliegerie to esprit de corps, there is always a back story. In answering those questions, 'Between the Moon and the Fire' also explores universal themes familiar to both wave-riders and non-surfers alike: curiosity and camaraderie; adventure and escape; progress and identity.

Sebastian Kevany has surfed for more than twenty years in California, Ireland, Hawaii, South Africa, Indonesia, Tanzania, Australia, Portugal and Sierra Leone. He has contributed to 'The Surfer’s Journal' and 'Zig Zag' surfing magazine and has also published academic articles. He lives in Ireland and the USA.
