Descripción

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.  The result is a breathtaking blend of crime and adventure that captures the allure and wickedness of this idyllic golden world. '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.'  Dan Duane, author of Caught Inside: A Surfer's Year on the California Coast.
