Great stories with deep meaning... 19 juillet 2013

The Code-- by Shaun Tomson and Patrick Moser

Author and psychiatrist M. Scott Peck once wrote..."life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it." This little book by surfing legend Shaun Tomson organizes an ethos for living a life of full spiritual citizenship through all of what life can require of us.

The tight, clean and illustrated hardbound volume is a compilation of riveting short stories each linking to one of Tomson's core values. The brief stories and values lead the reader through his life, including his rise to world champion, and his success and setbacks in the boardroom. His journey spans from teenage temptations to life threatening wipeouts in super-sized surf, and from rewarding victories to unimaginable personal loss.

Organized around a sort of kit to build one's own code, he provides any reader with the tools. While this is a GREAT book for any age, parents, teens and young adults could find value in its wisdom about many aspects of life, including; being true to ourselves, fear, perseverance, praying, imagining, creating and "making a difference". At 133 pages, this work is brief and very powerful.

Tomson says..."This book is about many things--faith, courage, creativity, determination--but above all it's about the promises we make about the future." I bought one of his books, devoured it, and now I need 5 more for gifts!

Surfing and the Free Ride generation inventor .. fantastic book well done we love it ... leclercq santa barbara 18 juillet 2013

He was born Shaun Tomson in Durban, South Africa. As a Jewish athlete, he was inducted into the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 1995. He learned to surf in the beachbreaks in and around Durban under the watchful eye of his father Ernie, and alongside older cousin Michael Tomson and brother Paul Tomson.

Shaun attended school in Durban - Clifton Preparatory, Carmel College and the University of Natal where he received a Bachelor of Commerce degree majoring in Business Finance. Shaun went on to dominate amateur surfing competition in South Africa and began venturing over to Hawaii in the late 60's, courtesy of a barmitzvah present from his father. It was on one of these trips that an awestruck 14 year old Tomson eyewitnessed the so-called "Biggest Wave Ever Ridden" by Californian Greg Noll at Makaha in 1969. Hawaii's surf proved to be a daunting challenge for Shaun, but he continued to mature and train in South Africa's hollow waves, such as Cave Rock, the Bay Of Plenty, and Jeffrey's Bay.

Shaun Tomson has been listed as one of the 25 most influential surfers of the century and as one of the 10 greatest surfers of all time. During his career he was both the youngest and oldest surfer to win a pro event and is considered to be one of the architects of professional surfing.

Surfing and the Free Ride generation

In 1975, Shaun was an integral part of the "Free Ride" generation. Along with Australians Rabbit Bartholomew, Mark Richards, Ian Cairns, Peter Townend and Mark Warren, they rode the infamous waves along Oahu's legendary North Shore with a style, aggression, and raw courage unseen prior to their arrival. Collectively, these surfers changed the face of surfing and were the first to really apply themselves as serious professional surfers. With his good looks, eloquence, and undeniable athleticism, Tomson served by default as the face and voice of this movement, and he is still viewed as the prototype blueprint for today's pro surfer, with legions of fans throughout the world. Tomson won the highly coveted IPS World Championship in 1977.

On a performance level, Tomson completely changed the way the tube section of the wave was ridden, using a unique style of pumping and weaving through and around collapsing sections of the barrel. Even today, his electrifying performances at Off The Wall and Backdoor Pipeline stand the test of time. A memorable quote of his from the period was Time is expanded inside the tube. A very underrated aspect of Tomson's inventiveness was his in the tube punch throughs where he escaped unscathed from hideous closeout sections over a shallow reef.
Shaun Tomson has appeared in many films including Free Ride, Fantasea, Many Classic Moments, and In God’s Hands. Tomson also co-produced an award winning full length feature film about the benchmark mid-70's surfing era called, "Bustin' Down The Door" which premiered in early 2008. He also wrote and narrated a documentary about Jeffreys Bay called "A Pure Line."
Tomson is a board member and ambassador for Surfrider Foundation, the world’s largest environmental group dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans, waves and beaches. In 1984 he was the first professional surfer to become a member of the foundation and was Chairman of the Advisory board. In 2002 he received the Surf Industry Manufacturer Association Environmentalist of the Year Award for his environmental efforts.

Perfect for all ages! 14 août 2013

World Champion surfer Shaun Tomson (Surfer's Code - 12 Simple Lessons for Riding Through Life) brings us his latest guidebook to life. This time his writing is based on the many talks he has personally given to schools. In the mid-70s, Tomson had the movie star looks and the talent to dominate the surf contests and magazines, and his company Instinct, was a lucrative business in the early 80s. But his life has not always been so easy.

He reveals to us his grit and determination to become a professional surfer, his lack of self esteem when 9/11 affected his business, and the grief he felt following the loss of his teenage son. It is these many personal experiences, that draw us in and give real weight to his lessons. Chapters include the following titles: "I will be myself," "I will dream," "I will face my fears," and more. This book is wonderfully written and illustrated with color photographs. Ideal for teenagers and a great read for adults, too. Highly recommended.

Great book 8 septembre 2013

This was featured in our local Santa Barbara newspaper. I bought 3, one for myself, one for my former surfer son who was a classmate of the Headmaster of Anacapa School who was one inspiration for the book, one for my 12 year old granddaughter. I love the simple yet powerful and positive affirmations.
The Code, by Shaun Thompson is a GOOD Read! 29 novembre 2013

I bought this book for my 17 year old son, but wanted to read it first to see what Shaun had to say.
I've been surfing for 43 years. Back in the 70's Shaun Thompson was a surfer I always looked up to because of his eloquent speech and clean lifestyle in a potentially druggy and profane surfing culture.
.I found his stories very illuminating of those years, and his life story very sobering. His honesty about his own ups and downs are liberating and insightful.
I think this book has valuable life lessons for any young person. It is a very helpful guide to navigating life's trial and tribulation.
Bravo Shaun Thompson and "The Code"!
Steven Levy
