    A large graphic novel by Aj Dungo that blends a historical reflection about surfing with a memoir about his love, Kristen, whom we learn almost from the very first has cancer The history of surfing parts seem initially rather disconnected and in a rather different tone from the personal sections about Kristen and their friends, who all spent a lot of time and joy surfing, as a kind of joyful, almost spiritual practice The history part, focused on two icons of surfing history, Duke Kahanamoku and Tom Blake, doesn t really focus on those psycho social dimension, but the two parts finally do both make it clear that surfing is often a passionate practice, where one connects aesthetics with sport.I like the layered storytelling that moves between past and present, between surfing and relationships I like the final reflection on waves, including waves of grief The illustration, design, color sepia for the surfing history, aqua for Kristen , with a lot of open space for reflection consistent with time on the ocean, are beautiful This is a very attractive artifact from Nobrow, lovingly made.I didn t get as deep a sense of Aj and Kristen s relationship as I would have liked Early on, he seemed obsessive, pushing her ...

    I WAS NOT READY FOR THE EMOTIONS THAT HAPPENED WHEN I READ THIS.First of all, I really enjoy the art in this graphic novel It s simple when it needs to be, and complex when it needs to The balance and use of colors to signify the different stories that intertwine is just fantastic Secondly, though, is that when I was handed a physical copy of this GN, I was just told that this was by a Filipino author OK, coolio Then I headed right in to reading it and read it straight through until the end, when I had many feelings about the topic.I liked the intertwining of the history of surfing with the author s experiences around surfing with his girlfriend who suffers from an advancing cancer...
