Surfing has been described as a sport, a religion, an obsession and a way of life. For Shaun Tomson, world champion surfer and successful entrepreneur, surfing is all of that and more. In Surfer's Code, Tomson shares the life lessons he's gathered over many years of surfing - from his boyhood in South Africa to the World Tour in the 70s and 80s. While the lessons Tomson shares are taken from beaches all over the world, they translate powerfully to everyday life and the extraordinary challenges we face. They reflect the attitude and outlook necessary to survive not only the ups and downs of life, but to master them and emerge a winner. His lessons include: I will never turn my back on the ocean; I will always paddle back out; I will watch out for other surfers; there will always be another wave; I will catch a wave every day.
