5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surfing and the Free Ride generation inventor .. fantastic book well done we love it ... leclercq santa barbara 18 juillet 2013
Par LECLERCQ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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.

I remember going to the Gunston 500 as a young teenager and watching Shaun Tomson. Of course i had an enormous crush on him. As life changed for me, i often wandered what became of him. This story, his story is beyond amazing. His code for life should be told to all young people. Shaun, if you return to South Africa, i want to be there to hear you.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 I Will - read it again, with my kids 20 décembre 2013

Great book with a positive message mixed with humour and wisdom. The idea of focus and working hard to achieve our goals, despite obstacles, is delivered in a non-preachy way with a touching human side.

One of those books that you can share with your teens and discuss around the fireplace as it deals with making decisions that can affect your life forever.

(Not sure whether my kid's generation feels the same way about surfing as I do, but they do relate to the storyline.)

4 stars because I really liked the book, but its very short. Shaun has an amazing story, both in his personal and professional life, and hearing some of his story's is definitely inspiring. Its a nice book to add to the collection, just wish there was more content.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 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.
