Dear Reader,

RACING WITH ALOHA is part adventure tale, part spiritual memoir. I met my friend Mark Spitz in high school, which led me to a championship swimming career. Later, I surfed isolated Indonesian beaches, mentored a young Laird Hamilton, and competed in world-renowned windsurfing contests from Maui to England to Africa during the sport's heyday.

"Fred's depictions of surfing and swimming exploits are energetic and concise enough to engage even lounge chair adventurers," says BlueInk Review. And: "Racing with Aloha will delight readers who love memoirs steeped in the atmosphere of Hawaii and the culture of surfing." —Midwest Book Review
