Surf, Sweat & Tears: the Epic Life and Mysterious Death of Edward George William Omar Deerhurst
What really happened to Ted, Viscount Deerhurst, surfing professional, the “Lord on a Board”?
Lee Child said: “I don’t usually read books about surfers, but this is like Truman Capote with shorts.”
When I met Ted, he was a would-be surfing champion of the world, in search of the perfect wave – and “the perfect woman” – and I was a surfing correspondent. I ended up writing his obituary. Twenty years later I retraced his steps and finally returned to Hawaii to try to find out how he died.
The trouble with paradise, as Ted discovered, is that the bad guys always get there first.
