“Heartfelt, honest, and deceptively simple. It’s great stuff with the words 'Cult Classic' stamped all over it.”—Alex Wade, author of Surf Nation

SALTWATER BUDDHA

A Surfer’s Quest to Find Zen on the Sea

Jaimal Yogis

Fed up with teenage life in the suburbs, Jaimal Yogis ran off to Hawaii with little more than a copy of Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha and enough cash for a surfboard. His journey is a coming-of-age saga that takes him from communes to monasteries, from the warm Pacific to the icy New York shore. Equal parts spiritual memoir and surfer’s tale, this is a chronicle of finding meditative focus in the barrel of a wave and eternal truth in the great salty blue.
