Surf Rage/Young, Nat/Paper/0958575010/S013-A
The inspiration for this book came while Nat Young was lying in a hospital bed recovering from a brutal assault while surfing his home break at Angourie. He was trying to figure out some way to turn the negativity of the situation into something positive, both on a personal level and for the betterment of surfing.
A few years ago Nat had read an editorial in Australia's Surfing Life Magazine titled "H.A.T.E." by the then editor, 27 year old Derek Rielly. Derek's words painted a pretty ugly picture of surfing in the '90s and told everyone what they should do about it. Hoot, Appreciate, Taste, Enjoy, or H.A.T.E. was Derek's answer to surf rage. Nat was impressed with the article and after the assault at Angourie he contacted Derek inviting him to get involved in a book on the subject. Derek loved the idea of working on such an inspired project and immediately set about contacting a very diverse bunch of quality surf journalists to contribute chapters.
