About the Author

Patrick Moser is the editor of Pacific Passages: An Anthology of Surf Writing (University of Hawai'i Press, 2008). He collaborated with Shaun Tomson on Surfer's Code: 12 Simple Lessons for Riding through Life and has written articles for The Surfer's Journal and Surfer. He currently teaches writing and French language at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri where he also offers a course on the history and culture of surfing. Shaun Tomson was named one of the twenty-five most influential surfers of the twentieth century, and one of the sixteen greatest surfers of all time. He has created two multimillion-dollar clothing brands--Instinct and Solitude. He was born in Durban, South Africa, and now makes his home in Montecito, California.


Shaun Tomson has written an important and engaging book filled with wisdom and practical advice about personal growth and overcoming the inevitable challenges adolescents and young adults everywhere face. All adolescents, all parents, and better still all adolescents and their parents together would do well to read and ponder the inspiration and lessons contained in these pages.

Shaun's candidly unique insights into his ride provide hope and promise to new generations in following their dreams on their own personal wave.

Shaun's latest book will help youth all over the world understand how important it is to be yourself, make decisions that will lead you to success, and that life's obstacle can be overcome with commitment, perseverance, friendship and mentors. We will certainly use this book in our daily programming at the club. --Bill Locker, CEO/President "Boys and Girls Club of Camarillo" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)
Often, the story of a champion in sport is characterized by determination, focus, commitment and dedication and that is indeed true with Shaun. However, Shaun's insights are much more powerful and inspiring because they transcend competition and apply to all of our lives. Through the power of 'I will' comes the call to live a connected, purposeful and principled life. --Jim Weber, CEO "Brooks Running" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)
The Code is a guide for self-empowering decision making and provides the tools to effect positive change. It draws on Shaun's life experiences as both a world champion surfer and a father, giving insight and inspiration to young minds. --Pat O'Neill, President and CEO "O'Neill Wetsuits" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)
The world today is very much like a wave: it's shifting and changing virtually every second. Like surfers, we are defined by the decisions we make in this dynamic environment. Shaun draws on a life of learning, both on waves and off, and offers some sage advice for drawing the best line through life. I love this book. --Jim Moriarty, CEO "Surfrider Foundation" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)
Shaun Tomson will always be a surfing legend, but if history is just he'll be equally revered for his work out of the water. The Code cements his status as one of surfing's great thinkers and its lessons carry weight and value for everyone. --Brendon Thomas, Editor "Surfer Magazine" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)
Although The Code sells itself as a self-help book for teens, it is a much richer mix than that. It's part memoir, part surf rap, part homage. Above all, it's a gut-punching journey of emotional resurrection. Shaun Tomson confronts the darkest kind of tragedy-the death of his own son-with grace, intelligence, and a historic kind of hopefulness. The lessons herein penetrate in unexpected ways. --Steve Hawk, Former Editor "Surfer Magazine" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)
Shaun Tomson is a surfing hero, and he continues to inspire with words of wisdom and empowerment for future generations. He speaks from experience and has great advice about overcoming adversity and making good choices in your formative years. --Tony Hawk, Skateboard Icon and World Champion "Surfer Magazine" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)

Live The Code.

--Shaun White, Snowboard Olympic Gold Medalist "Surfer Magazine" (4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM)
