Dolphin Smoote is the leader of the “Surf Dawgs,” a group of young, ultra-cool Southern California surfers who observe the True Surfers’ Code. The code, which dates from the heyday of sixties surf culture, dictates that whether they are riding waves, chasing girls, or facing other challenges, they have to be both “casual” and “radical.” Dolphin is smitten with the new girl from out of town and longs to impress her, but acquiring a job would interfere with his casual, radical lifestyle. When his crime-writing aunt Clementine leaves him her beach home for the summer—an unusual old house designed to ward off ghosts—Dolphin sees the perfect solution to his problems. But his real problems are just beginning, as he and the Dawgs find themselves facing ghosts, a rival surf gang, and a high-tech crime mystery that even Aunt Clemmie would be proud of.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] fresh and wacky look at the Southern California beach and surf culture [that] captures something of the ethos of Tom Wolfe’s Pump House, but in an extended and comical way…[Grover Gardner] whimsically nails the surf dialect…and drolly captures the other characters.” Craig Black, Publisher

Author Bio: John J. Jacobson

Author Bio: John J. Jacobson

Though John J. Jacobson didn’t join the French Foreign Legion after being jilted by a girlfriend, or over his displeasure of missing the last great cattle drive, he has, borrowing Churchill’s phrase, lived a rather variegated life. He was born in Nevada, grew up in the West, surfed big waves in Hawaii, circled the world thrice, survived the sixties and seventies, corporate America, and grad school. Among other degrees he has an MA in Renaissance literature from Claremont Graduate University.
