“the dharma of surfing” is released


Welcome! Thanks for dropping by to greet the arrival of “the dharma of surfing: wisdom from the water for life” a beautiful new hardcover book collection of 52 surf-life wisdoms and full colour photographs.

“the dharma of surfing” is written by surfing, yoga and fitness instructor Sally MacKinnon who lives and works in the mountains and beaches of South East Queensland Australia. Evocative full colour photographs are by surfer-sailor Scotty Johnson and educator Huon MacKinnon-Farnworth.

“the dharma of surfing” is a love letter to life…

It is a book for everyone that invites readers to dive into surfing and the ocean as a metaphor for life and also offers practical guidance to surfers of all levels for when they are out in the big blue.

“Surfing is more than standing up on a surfboard. It is, I believe, the language of ‘Oceanspeak’ of feet on waves, of heart in sky, of breath and body in synch with Mother Nature.

“Perhaps if we surf with a spirit of sharing, connection, love, mindfulness, gratitude, humility, joyfulness, awareness, playfulness and curiosity then we might also take those qualities further into our lives as a right way of living”

(from the Introduction to “the dharma of surfing: wisdom from the water for life”).
