Críticas:

"Absolutely the most entertaining surf book in years, a breathless adrenalized romp. More importantly, it's a jaw-dropping introduction to Smith's greatest--and most promising--literary creation, himself. This man-and this book-are both going places."--Daniel Duane, author of Caught Inside: A Surfer's Year on the California Coast

A vivid and somewhat disconcerting depiction of the world of surfing and its attendant problems . . . An uncommon read for those interested in surfing or those seeking a look at Hawaii from a vantage point not normally found in history books.--Library Journal

A hip expos? of Hawaii's North Shore surfing culture . . . entertains, while superior reporting informs and illuminates much about the surf industry's peculiar machinations, its cavalcade of sun-bleached heroes and the troubled history of Hawaii itself . . . effortlessly shifting from the profound to the profane.--Kirkus

A mix of reportage and gonzo journalism.... [with] trenchant...astute observations.... If Hunter S. Thompson circa Hell's Angels merged with a fashion critic to write about surfing for Maxim, the result might be similar.--Publishers Weekly

Smith grabs us with his first sentence [with] this exciting and revelatory book--Booklist

[A] ripping profile of the surf culture on Oahu's North Shore . . . Smith['s] storytelling is taught . . .--Wall Street Journal

Smith doesn't simply stand in judgment. He loves the world of the North Shore, and he hates it. With gleeful defiance and feral wit, he harnesses his ambivalence to fuel this compulsive, wild ride of a book.--Sydney Morning Herald, Pick of the Week

A wild and unflinching look at the adrenalin-soaked world of surfing.--Melbourne Herald Sun

[A] ripping profile of the surf culture on Oahu s North Shore . . . Smith[ s] storytelling is taught . . .--Wall Street Journal"

Absolutely the most entertaining surf book in years, a breathless adrenalized romp. More importantly, it s a jaw-dropping introduction to Smith s greatest--and most promising--literary creation, himself. This man-and this book-are both going places. --Daniel Duane, author of Caught Inside: A Surfer's Year on the California Coast"

Reseña del editor:

A finalist for the PEN Center USA Award for Nonfiction

Welcome to Paradise, Now Go to Hell, is surfer and former war reporter Chas Smith’s wild and unflinching look at the high-stakes world of surfing on Oahu’s North Shore—a riveting, often humorous, account of beauty, greed, danger, and crime.

For two months every winter, when Pacific storms make landfall, swarms of mainlanders, Brazilians, Australians, and Europeans flock to Oahu’s paradisiacal North Shore in pursuit of some of the greatest waves on earth for surfing’s Triple Crown competition. Chas Smith reveals how this influx transforms a sleepy, laid-back strip of coast into a lawless, violent, drug-addled, and adrenaline-soaked mecca.

Smith captures this exciting and dangerous place where locals, outsiders, the surf industry, and criminal elements clash in a fascinating look at class, race, power, money, and crime, set within one of the most beautiful places on earth. The result is a breathtaking blend of crime and adventure that captures the allure and wickedness of this idyllic golden world.
