Eco-Wars and Surf Stories from the Coast of the Californias

Many people have lamented the pollution and outright loss of beaches along the coasts of California and Mexico, but very few people have fought on behalf of beaches as hard—or as successfully—as Serge Dedina. In this sparkling collection of articles, many written for popular magazines, Dedina tells the stories as only an insider could. Sprinkled with just the right mix of humor and surf lingo, Dedina’s writing is “weapons grade”—surfer speak for totally awesome.

In Wild Sea, Dedina describes helping to construct the unlikely coalition that succeeded in defeating a proposed toll road that would have decimated a legendary California surf spot. In between, he writes about the first surfers in Baja, the Great Baja Land Rush of the 1990s, Tijuana’s punk music scene, the pop-culture wrestling phenomenon lucha libre, the reasons why ocean pollution must be stopped, and the way HBO took over his hometown. 

 “Serge Dedina writes with both passion and clarity about a subject he  knows like the back of his hand.  For anyone with an interest in the issues that define life on the U.S./Mexican border, Serge’s book is  indispensable.  For anyone with an interest in Southern California Surf lore, with its attendant iron men and holy goofs, Serge’s book is a pleasure to read.” -Kem Nunn, author of Tijuana Straits
