The surfing world comes to life with its fun atmosphere and unique language while reinforcing the letters of the alphabet. Jim Herbert created the beautifully hand sculpted surfing characters in this book out of recycled metal such as car bumpers, fenders, pipes, and kitchen utensils.

Both adults and children will enjoy the intricate designs and personalities of each individual surfer. Look closely, and you will see silverware patterns, window wipers, snow chains and many more commonly used metals that have been re purposed, and given new life as they have been transformed into these live action surfers.

All the surfing buddies give mini lessons that demonstrate the meanings of some popular surf lingo for each letter of the alphabet. Combine all that with beautiful ocean photography, and you have yourself a very cool book to be enjoyed by all ages. Surf’s Up Dude!

About the Author

Jim and Claire Herbert live in Santa Cruz, CA. Jim is a retired auto collision repair shop owner who now enjoys using his skills of working with metal, combined with his love for the ocean and surfing, to create sculptures that blend those passions. Each of his sculptures have been hand crafted out of recycled metal. More of his work can be seen at www.Facebook.com/wavesofsteel. Claire has been teaching language arts to middle school students for over 30 years. She wanted to write a book that would not only bring Jim's sculptures to life, but also to encourage reading aloud to children.
