Board by David C. Flanagan
“A Story About Accepting Limitations”
Written by David C. Flanagan, Board is the story of the author’s attempt to overcome a lifelong fear of the ocean and learn to surf as a 40-something father.
David lives off the wild Atlantic cost in Orkney and says that writing the book forced him to explore issues such as loss, ego, fear, honesty, fatherhood and friendship.
He says: “The book charts my first tentative, and hapless, steps in surfing and the challenges and danger I’ve subsequently faced trying to pursue this most demanding of sports.”
