Sometimes, when a man embarks on a mission, he can become impossible to stop.It's the Dream Tour: the race for the world surfing championship. It's cut-throat. It's personal. It's The Big Five Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning, Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson and Andy Irons attacking each other like wild dogs. Some Day goes behind the roped-off areas to reveal all the bonds, rifts, triumphs and controversies as the hottest field in tour history chases the world championship. Exclusive interviews. Eyewitness accounts. Jaw-dropping pictures by the ASP's official photographers from the most spectacular surfing locations on the planet in Australia, Tahiti, Chile, South Africa, the United States, France, Spain and Brazil. Everywhere from the spiritual homes of Jeffreys Bay and Bells Beach to the killing field of Teahupo'o. Will Swanton is on Kelly Slater's shoulder at Trestles. He's on the stage with Taj Burrow at Bells. He's on the cliffs of Mundaka with Mark Occhilupo. He's on the sand with Mick Fanning when all hell breaks loose in Brazil after the most nerve-racking year of Fanning's life. Never before has a book gone so far inside pro surfing. Never before has the world title race been covered in such microscopic detail. This is as close as you can get without pulling on a contest singlet yourself.
