Fearlessness: The Story of Lisa Andersen


I opened my mailbox today to find a copy of Fearlessness: The Story of Lisa Andersen by Nick Carroll. I’m so stoked! The book is a new release on shelves this December- just in time to make a great holiday gift. Lisa, as I’m sure you know, is a four-time world champion who ran away from her home in Florida at age 16 to become the best surfer in the world. (What I didn’t know is that she lived in Virginia for a few years- my home state!) The biography retraces her childhood, her rise to fame, her life as a champion as well as a mother of two. In the preface written by Lisa herself, she says, ” In hindsight you want to go back in time and change things- do things better, with more strength or more knowledge. But hat all if it now happened as it did, it would have changed the end results. The bottom line is, I was meant to be a mother first and world champion second, and I would never change that! I have new dreams now- not about winning world titles but about giving my kids everything I can. And, of course, the one in which I find great love that lasts forever.”

I can’t wait to start reading- I’ll give a review soon. The book has been published by Chronicle and retails for $24.95
