Tides is Jonathan White’s romantic look at the motion of the sea. As surfers, we can all relate to the love, power, and majesty of the ocean that White explores in depth in his new book. As a writer, sailor, educator, and marine conservationist, White takes us around the globe from France to China to Panama to the Arctic and back again exploring tidal changes and the effects they have on the land and people. One particular chapter is about Mavericks, the big wave spot off the California coast that responds in its own finicky way to the tides and swells. Despite the abundance of scientific information, Tides becomes a surprisingly fascinating and highly readable book because of White’s deep love for the ocean.
