Masters World Champion Tandem surfer Bear Woznick releases new book, ‘Deep in the Wave’

(July 26, Honolulu, HI) In this intimate portrayal of the relationship between surfing and the soul, Bear Woznick, along with cowriter Lou Aronica, shares his deep knowledge of the sport along with his spiritual vision on every page of DEEP IN THE WAVE.

An extremely accomplished waterman, Bear, who calls the sunny shores of Waikiki home, melds his decades of experience in the lineup with his own spiritual quest. Running the gauntlet of experiences a surfer can have, DEEP IN THE WAVE uses surfing as a metaphor to explain Bear's special relationship with spirituality and God.

From taking you inside the shaping bay to accompanying the author as he describes the wave of his life, Bear’s portrayal of the beauty and power of the ocean is an inspiring one that truly showcases the profound meaning surfing has had on his life. Instead of standing on the shore with our toes dug into the surf, Bear takes us into the lineup--into the impact zone--to watch and wait, and, if need be, to paddle hard to survive.

The spiritual journey described in DEEP IN THE WAVE is as exciting as the surfing and Bear keeps readers engaged every step of the way. Since the book's release in July, DEEP IN THE WAVE has become an Amazon Best Seller and has accrued critical acclaim.
