For the lates episode I am very happy to announce a very special guest, who’s book I have read last year. A book that caught me from the first paragraph and that was so different from everything else that I have read about surfing until then.

I am talking about William Finnegan the author the wonderful piece barbarian days, with whom I sat down in Berlin during the Surffilm-Festival Berlin (organised by last weekend, having a pizza, a lemonade and a very nice conversation about his book and therefore about his life of writing and surfing. 

Subjects we were talking about:


• How it came to the idea for Barbarian Days

• Lifestyle of Traveling compared to living in New York

• The development of Surfing in general (commercialisation etc.)
• Did his life changed after winning the Pulitzer Price?
• The meaning of the ocean
• Filled line ups due to publications
• Literature / Writers that did inspire William Finnegan
• Spirituality
• and more…
