Church of the Open Sky @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
What makes for a surfing life? With a blaze of groundbreaking performances and a swag of titles claimed from all over the world to his name, Australian world champion surfer Nat Young might know. But surfing for Nat – and so many like-minded surfers – has never been about winning, never been about the sport. It’s a calling, an endless quest, a philosophy, a religion. Most of all, surfing is a way of life that has underpinned his other identities as board shaper, film producer, writer, raconteur, conservationist, activist, pilot, husband, and father. Join The Community Library for a presentation on Nat Young’s new book, “Church of the Open Sky”, which explores what it means to be a surfer and gathers true stories of Nat’s surfing life – and the friends, foes and heroes he’s met along the way. Books will be available for sale and signing, courtesy of Chapter One Bookstore.
