The inspiring story of the best freestyle surfer in the world and his struggle with Asperger's syndrome.From childhood, it was obvious that Clay Marzo's single-minded focus on surfing was unique, almost preternatural. But the deeper reasons for this obsession didn't become clear until his late teens, when Marzo was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome.
Marzo was already a surfing phenom, winning the National Scholastic Surfing Association championship at fifteen, but it was tough for him to relate to his peers and fit in. Only while surfing did he truly feel at peace. Just Add Water is the remarkable story of Marzo's rise to the top of the pro surfing world-and the personal trials he overcame in making it there. Unflinching and inspiring, it is a brave memoir from a one-of-a-kind surfing savant who has electrified fans around the world and whose story speaks to the hope and ultimate triumph of the human spirit.
CLAY MARZO is a professional surfer and was the subject of the award-winning surf documentary Just Add Water . He works extensively with Surfers Healing, a charity for autistic youth. ROBERT YEHLING is an award-winning surfing journalist and author of ten books.
