I guess it is not peculiar to work on a novel for 6 years or more. It does seem peculiar, however, that something as important as book publishing rests with a request for a “few spare minutes.”

Need some help - Hi. I am writing a novel (fiction) about a pro surfer on the North Shore. I need someone to help me with some questions that I have to finish my research.
I'm looking for: North Shore Lifeguards, North Shore Surfers (Particularly those who surf Pipe, Alii, Sunset)
Pros (Or anyone who knows the ins and outs of the WCT) and anyone who knows alot about boards (Styles, What types to use where)
I believe I have most of my information correct, as I have researched the topic, and taken from my own experience, but I am still unsure about a few specific things.
I really need this information before my book can be published, so if someone could spare a few minutes
, I would appreciate the help.
Please write me back at look_bunnies@hotmail
ThanksI guess it is not peculiar to seek for information in multiple sources. I do it. But, there is no substitute for direct observation. Besides, who doesn’t like to go to Hawaii?

Not planning on doing it...writing a book and would LOVE some help:
When paddling out to Pipeline through the channel do you ever need to duck dive, or is it an easy go? I just need to know what it's like so I can describe my character doing it.
Also if anyone who lives and surfs on the North Shore is interested in helping me with my book please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
. I really want to make sure anything I put about surfing there is relevant. I have surfed and do know a lot about the subject, but have never gone out in big waves or the north shore. I would be ever grateful. CI guess it was good enough for Joe Cocker (getting "a little help from my friends", that is)Found @ self-publisher's guide:
