About the Author

Author Dave Rearwin grew up with Spanish and ended up teaching the language in a variety of settings, from American universities to a college in Japan. He also grew up surfing, made his first serious surf trip deep into mainland Mexico in the 1960s and was very glad to have the language; later trips (which featured a number of adventures that required some fast talking) made him even gladder. This book is the result of his surf travel experiences.
