Lines to the Horizon: Australian Surf Writing – Our Review


Our Review…A new surfing anthology is always a cause for celebration, especially when it has a Victorian element, with the foreword by Jock Serong and a fantastic piece on local identities by Anglesea’s Mark Smith – author of the Road to Winter series and a familiar sight in the water.

Totally engaging, Lines to the Horizon features six detailed pieces on how the power of the ocean and the pull of the surf has contributed to many of facets of Australian culture, from its literature to its music and art, as well as the shaping of some pretty unique individuals.

A great read for anyone who has felt the lure of the sea and known that they would not feel complete until they headed to the ocean.
