Product Description

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.

Stunno's Surf Adventure is a fun filled adventure for kids and adults alike. Bright illustrations and metered verse take the reader on a rollicking quintessentially Australian romp. Appealing to those who enjoy surfing and those who have never stood on a surfboard in their life, this is the enjoyable story of a likeable echidna named Stunno who takes his combi van down the coast to catch some waves. Join Stunno on his adventure and learn some surfing lingo while you're at it! Thoroughly recommended.

I love both the beautiful illustrations in this book and the rhyming story.
We live by the beach and so our kids are growing up in the world of surfing and searching for the perfect wave. This book is such a great way to give them a glimpse into their dad's favourite hobby before they are big enough to hit the waves with him.
A fantastic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story in being optimistic and pursuing your passion 22 November 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Stunno the echidna loves to surf, and a flat-water won't stop him from doing so. Not letting this set-back stop him, he drives up the coast to catch some wicked waves, a day full of fun and doing what he loves the most.

More than anything else, this book will give your kids an insight on having an optimistic view on situations, and not allowing circumstances to stop you from pursuing your passions.

It also gives the young ones a first glance on the Aussie surfing lifestyle. A glossary of surf-lingo at the end will help them comprehend the story further. A great page is where Stunno is entering a tube- it gives the kids a unique perspective that only surfers get to see.
