We are particularly fond of this travel guide.
The closing monologue is perfectly accurate:
"As a nation we are at the cusp of change, either we fail or we succeed with only ourselves in our own way. Tumbling through the angry torrent of the water pulled form all seeming directions by the current, we forget where the air begins and where the water ends. Lost in a weightless motion for a nanosecond that extends a lifetime, your head peaks through the surface shattering through breakers of sunlight giving you breath of life if only just for a moment. Before you realize that the waves never stop coming, paddle hard, welcome the pain in your shoulders. Laugh at the saltwater insulting your face. Shout through your agony. Release your inner thoughts. Let yourself be heard. You make it back to the lineup, proud, exhausted and that's where the real game begins. Patiently you sit staring out into the blue board, wondering who is going to make the first move. You tease the water, coaxing it to create something special just for you. You wait hands open for a sign. At a distance the machinery of the sea begins, frightening, all powerful and exciting. You are in control. This is your board. This is your body, your mind. Believe in your arms that will make you gain speed and the legs that will secure you through this. The feeling of being engulfed in something bigger and more important that you is intoxicating. I know it can be overwhelming, so just look forward and rely on what you've learned, your failures. Everything is falling into place. It comes down to you and the wave."
