South Africa’s adventure writing scene is set to heat up with the launch of John McCarthy’s new book The Sexy Ugly Beautifuls.
The Sexy Ugly Beautifuls is a rock ‘n’ roll collection of ocean infused adventures; so named after the colourful characters and exotic destinations John discovered in his global quest to ride the perfect wave. These stories share John’s unique journey from youthful bodysurfer in South Africa to the thundering tubes of Hawaii’s North Shore and on into the wilderness of Namibia and Mozambique.
“This book brims with a wanderlust that drives John to hunt down waves in remote and unusual places. The result? A life of extraordinary adventures. A visceral turn of phrase – – delivered with humour – takes us with him on this wild and crazy ride.”
Steve Pike – Founder Wavescape Media
“John’s dedication to surfing makes this a completely authentic read.”
Grant ‘Twiggy’Baker – Multiple Big Wave World Surfing Champion
“John’s empathy and connection with people shine through in his wonderful character descriptions.”
Tom Hewitt – MBE Founder Surfers Not Streetchildren
“The way John thinks and writes about the ocean is unique. This book allows us to share in his extraordinary relationship with Mother Nature.”
Olivia Symcox – Head Shark Angels SA
