Patrick O'Connor's South Swell is the story of how surfing affected one California family during the 1960s. A girl's father decides to take up surfing to keep his daughter company, only to learn it wasn't nearly as easy as it looked. "To his surprise, he discovered it required infinite effort to attain the ability to ride a wave to shore, or even to lie on the surfboard without slipping off, a fine sense of timing which indicated when to approach a wave, as well as an excellent knowledge of the behavior of the sea to judge where and when to surf."
