Writers Live - Phil Jarratt introduces Life of Brine
16th Aug '17 @ Berkelouw Mona Vale
You are invited to meet Phil Jarratt when he introduces his new book Life of Brine: A Surfer's Journey.
Simon Anderson, (Mr. Thruster), will host the event and Phil will be in conversation with Kirk Willcox former editor of Tracks magazine.
As one of the world's best-known chroniclers of the surfing culture for more than 40 years, Australian writer Phil Jarratt is an absolute legend. In his memoir Life of Brine: A Surfer's Journey he rides the wave of nostalgia seamlessly from the 1960s to recent times, from one side of the Pacific to the other, from the cold Southern Ocean to the warm Java Sea, from Bali to Biarritz and many points in between.
Starting with the innocence of Jarratt's early days learning to surf in the 60s, and moving through encounters with surfing greats, he shares experiences at the world's hottest surfing spots and wild times.
Jarratt pulls no punches and spares no reputations as he interprets surfing's journey from slightly spooky sidebar cult to billion dollar sport and industry - but it is also the reflections of a lifelong surfer whose pursuit of the waves has governed much of his life.
