Phil Jarratt is on the road again with amusing stories and a video presentation about his surfing memoir, Life Of Brine. Already in reprint, the book is a critical success that is flying out of the shops. Don’t miss out!


Wednesday 18 October
An Entertaining Evening with Phil Jarratt
Life of Brine is the memoir of Phil Jarratt, one of the world’s best-known chroniclers of surfing culture whose lifelong pursuit of the perfect wave has placed him in the midst of some of the most exciting moments in surfing’s modern history.
Jarratt, who has courted controversy in his long career as a journalist, editor and documentarian, pulls no punches as he rides an exhilarating wave of nostalgia from the sixties up until now, through the heady days of drugs, alcohol and excess in Bali and Biarritz and other exotic locations in between. Filled with debauchery, reflection and insight, this is a book that will be devoured by surfers young and old.
The evening programme will include an “in conversation” with Phil and Pacific Longboarder editor John Brasen, accompanied by short movie clips. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
Phil will have books on sale on the night and will happily autograph them for you.
Free entry -- Doors open: 6pm for 7pm start
Drinks and sausage sizzle available
