Welcome to the Surf Park Central Book Club

Below are the books from the Surf Park Central Book Club — a curated list (with more to come) of the best books and most interesting reads from the surfing realm.

Surf is Where You Find It by Gerry Lopez | Surf Park Central Book Club | Surfers Reading List


“Those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach.” Gerry Lopez shatters this adage with a collection of lessons learned from a lifetime of waveriding. With a humility that belies his ground-breaking contributions to the sport, “Mr. Pipeline” provides a candid perspective on the essence of surfing. You’re sure to find a great deal of inspiration for your next paddle out, but also an increased appreciation for what waves can teach us about life on land. Those who enjoy the clear-headed wisdom of the late John Wooden will find the same genius in Surf Is Where You Find It.
