    Hi, don’t see an email address on the site. I’d be happy to review the book if you can send me a copy. I will return the copy when finished if needed. Let me know. Thanks.

    Hi Kevin, I recently saw a review of your book in ‘The Surfers Journal’ and only read the first paragraghs and said i want this book. Like Movie previews if i pick up on something id like to see in the first 10-15seconds of the preview, then I look down…. Yeah I wont watch it. Cos for some reason they always show the action shots that somewhat spoil what could have been a surpirse.

    So I stoped reading your preview not to spoil what im going to read…. i got the idea in the first few lines, and felt it could be a fun filled goodie. However I was dissapointed not to be able to buy for my kindle via Amazon. Why is that? It would and could be a smart move for you.

    yes holding a ‘real’ book is great but not always nessasary…. surfers journal is a nessasary cos of all the awesome shots and art. I try to do my part as far as enviroment recyle recycle….

    So any chance you will sell to amazon. I hope sooo and soon. please let me know

    Aloha, Tracey
