Publisher's Summary

A wondrous, uproarious, and surprisingly informative account of a year spend surfing, Caught Inside marks the arrival of an exuberant new voice of the outdoors. This remarkable narrative of Daniel Duane’s life on the water is enhanced by good-humored explanations of the physics of wave dynamics, the intricate art of surfboard design, and lyrical, sharp-eyed descriptions of the flora and fauna of the Pacific wilderness. From Captain Cook and Mark Twain to Robinson Jeffers and Jack London, from portraits of famous (and infamous) surfers to an analysis of Gidget’s perverse significance, Duane expertly uncovers the myths and symbols bound up in one of our most vibrant and recognizably American subjects.

    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "The Surfer Memoir that Changed Everything"

    Daniel Duane moved to Santa Cruz in the mid-90s, looking for something. He dove down a dark, watery rabbit hole, living by the tides and swells of the Pacific Ocean.

    What started out as a hobby turned into an obsession— and it's no lie to say Duane pulled more men in with him, than Neptune could've ever imagined. Caught Inside became the definitive surfing bible of the modern middle class surfing generation.

    Duane takes his listeners into the "lineup" to experience the localism, the stink-eye, the beauty and danger of surfing.

    Coming from a VERY outside place, Duane understands there's an "inside" place to be, and he gets guided in to find his own bearings— a story any man, in or out of the water, will relate to.
