Swell: Sailing the Pacific in Search of Surf and Self
Embarking on an adventure that most only fantasize about, in 2006 Liz Clark set sail from Santa Barbara, California, as captain of her 40-foot sailboat, Swell, headed south toward the wonder and learning that lies beyond the unbroken horizon. In true stories overflowing with wild waves and constant challenges, at the whim of the weather, relationships sweet and sour, nature’s marvels and colorful cultures, Liz captures her voyage in gripping detail in this memoir, sharing tales of sailing in high seas, of solitude and surprises, of finding connection to the earth and commitment to living in harmony with it. More than ten years, 20,000 miles, countless adventures, and one cat later, she’s still out there.

Nothing in my opinion speaks to the ideal of a revival wave better than waves like; Teahupoo and the ferocity of its truck sized lip and the fear it induces, or Cloud break with its contradictory beauty of alluring seductive barrels that break over sharp, unforgiving reef. This revival ideal also applies to Chicama, a hypnagogic wave nestled in the Peruvian dessert.
Flying with boards is always a little nerve racking, but I’m here to outline some information I’ve learned from travelling on various surf trips over the years. This should make it easier for you to decide what surfboards and equipment to bring, and most importantly, how to pack your gear so that it arrives there safely.
