KOOK: OC Register’s Book of the Month

Kook Learns Surfing from a Saint

On a visit to SoCal author Peter Heller decided to teach himself to surf…with disastrous results. Then, when he was parked across from the Seal Beach Pier watching the waves, a van pulled in and Michael Pless Sr. got out.

Pless (the owner of M & M Surfing School) is the one who showed Heller how to surf – launching him on a surfing road trip to Baja California in a VW van and to writing his book KOOK about his adventures. See the story in Surf’n Beach Scene Magazine:
