My Accidental Jihad by Krista Bremer

"Back in 1994, after I stood up on a surfboard for the first time, I thought I might just have discovered my purpose in life."

In retrospect, this is kind of funny. While I'm sure a lot of surfers feel this way, it's hardly a "purpose." She would find her purpose, her family, a few years later, when she leaves California and surfing. But the balance that she learned while surfing will be crucial to the success of her culture-clash of a marriage.
