Brayden, at twenty five, leaves his life in Los Angeles to surf and build a lonelier existence at the edge of a jungle in Mexico - but when he meets Isla, a local girl, a love begins that might save him from the tragedy awaiting him in the ocean.

Brayden turns his back on a girl, a job, a life. He's going deep into Mainland Mexico to test himself in some of the largest waves in the world. But Brayden seems to be testing more than his courage in Oaxaca, in the ocean, in the heat.
He is stunned when he meets Isla. She is beautiful, shipwrecked from love, unavailable. He can't get enough of her.
There is a revelation of a new life and lessons are being hard learned. He sees ideas of turning chaos to calm, doubt to faith, distraction to focus. The sun, the empty beaches, the palms, and the hills are a good home.
Everyday he is heading out into surf that could kill him or waiting for it to come. And everyday he grows deeper and more wildly in love. He is rushing down the face of giant waves, battling through the wild ocean, pushing himself to his limits and waiting and wanting to go beyond. He is chasing the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. He doesn't know how to quit.
If it doesn't work, if he can't, well... he may not live. But he will have lived, of that he is sure.
