Tom Anderson has always loved surfing – anywhere except the UK. But a chance encounter leads him to adventure on home shores. As he visits the popular haunts and secret gems of British surfing he meets the Christians who pray for waves (and get them), is nearly drowned in the River Severn and has a watery encounter with a pedigree sheep. All this rekindles his love affair with the freezing fun that is surfing the North Atlantic.
Tom Anderson lives in Porthcawl, South Wales, and is the author of “Riding the Magic Carpet” and “Chasing Dean”. He is a successful competitive surfer and writes for several surf magazines, as well as being a senior committee member of the Welsh Surfing Federation.
“Grey Skies, Green Waves: A Surfer’s Journey Around the UK and Ireland”” by Tom Anderson is published in 2010 by Summersdale.
