To my surprise, the O.C. Register ran a twee report about how I used surfing to motivate my sabbatical book project. The reporter, Marla Jo Fisher, evidently read my blog post on the topic, and figured that it would make a cute "slice of life" sort of story. She and the photographer, Leonard Ortiz, did a fine job of not making me look like any more of a fool than I am—no mean feat, that. Nice folks, too.
