Surfing with Snakes & Dragons sublimely captures the allure and essence of surfing. Roger J. Couture portrays a counterweight to the stresses life imposes on us all in his romance of surfing Southern California waves.”

—Ben Marcus, former editor at SURFER magazine and author of twenty books,
including The Surfboard: Art, Style, Stoke.


“Both tragic and triumphant in all the right places. A beautifully written story about the desperately flawed. Couture's words mesmerize and then marinate; your heart will never be the same. Absolutely spellbinding.”

—Mike Bednarsky, former managing editor of Skin&Ink and Rebel Ink magazines


“From tattoo parlors to car racetracks to surfers' paradises, Roger J. Couture's stories have a unique voice that takes you to places you may have never been. It's a great ride and a great read.”

—Elaine Bernstein Partnow, author of The Quotable Woman: The First 5,000 Years
and star of the movie Slipaway
