Wilma Johnson was living on the west coast of Ireland with her family, balancing the challenges of being an artist, wife and mother, until, in her forties, she was gripped by a deep desire to seize the day, and moved to Biarritz to become a surfer.

The plan hits troubled waters as she arrives in France with her marriage on the rocks and three children who speak no French. Her first attempts at surfing are disastrous; resulting in bruises, broken bones and a damaged ego, but when she experiences the euphoric feeling of catching her first wave and sets up the Mamas Surf Club, it's all worth it.

'we're captivated by Surf Mama' 'It's the perfect inspirational read' 'Johnson is one of us.

Let's go surfin'!' * Psychologies Magazine, September 2014 issue *
'This story of one woman's foray into the macho world of surfing shows how self-reinvention is possible at any age.' * France Magazine, August 2014 issue *
'a light-hearted read for women looking for inspiration to change their path.' * Woman's Own, July 2014 issue *
'There's a voracious love of life at the heart of this book and a hedonistic determination to have it all - beer, wine and waves.' * Daily Mail, 6 June 2014 *
