A story about the excitement of surfing

 

Surfing Sally is a story inspired by life at the southwestern tip of Africa.

On the surface, it’s a story for 1- to 10-year-olds, about a salty-haired girl, two lively dogs, and a whale of a time at the beach.

But revealed through the splashes and waves of a surfing adventure
is a deeper tale about nature’s energy, playful forms and pure spirit.


Sally observes brief reflections in foam, changing shadows on sand,
and rainbows streaking the wind-blown spray. She senses a whole
life in the ocean, air and sky just as vital as each wave she thrills to
catch and ride along.

For Sally, surfing seems the ultimate way –
dunked in sea, bathed in light, immersed in nature.
