In the engaging children’s picture book “Stunno’s Surf Adventure,” longtime surfing aficionado Mark Reside reveals some of the lure and lingo of a sport that leaves its participants yearning for just one more chance to seek out a monster set, smack the lip, and enter the green room.
The story begins when Stunno, the surfing echidna (that’s a spiny anteater to non-Aussies), arrives at his favorite beach only to see that the water is “flat” – no surf. He can’t catch a wave, so he drives up the coast and soon finds himself rewarded for his efforts with a huge inviting ground swell.
An excerpt from the book reads as follows: Yeoww! Made it to the reef in perfect time. A huge ground swell, the waves look prime. The wind’s offshore and the tides are right. A wicked day’s surfing now firmly in sight.
Offset by Tina Jacobson’s colorful and captivating illustrations, Stunno’s adventures in rhyme both engage and inspire, and the book concludes with a helpful glossary that defines the different terminology Aussie surfers use.
