However, this book is lacking actual, applicable techniques for a majority of the topics. Many of the tips sound like "... tweak your ankles and look in the direction you want to go... keep your hips low..." Duh! Taj is a great surfer, but either he doesn't want you to know what he knows or doesn't know how to explain what he does.
The complete lack of basic information laid no foundation for further explanations on things like floaters, cutbacks or airs, which were vague and ambiguous anyway. There is absolutely no discussion of wave physics and how it applies to surfing. There isn't even an explanation on how to do basic speed pumps... He even says that stretching is useless.
