He’s a surfer. A loner. A man on a quest to rid himself of pesky feelings.
After his grandfather passes away, Cal Prescott begins to see life differently.
Money wants his attention, women beckon, and the pursuit of success becomes a cycle he can’t seem to break.
Follow Cal from age sixteen to forty-five, from 1985 to 2014, from the tangerine fields of Ojai to the neon streets of Miami Beach — from being ready to take on the world to hitting the bottom of the sea.
Cal spends half his life waiting for the perfect wave to break over the horizon, looking for comfort, searching for peace — and he’ll chase every last drop of water ... until he finds release.
