Overview

'The waves, why are they breaking so suddenly?' asked Alex. 'It's going from deep to shallow water real quick. It's called closing out. If you get caught under it pins you down.'

One minute Alex is a kid, the next he's searching for deep water. Searching to become a man, to know how to treat the girl he loves. In this final instalment Alex skates his way through the toughest course of all - life.

Pat Flynn

Pat Flynn grew up running around an old dairy farm in Queensland before moving to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra on a tennis scholarship. After playing and coaching on the professional circuit he became a teacher, where his observations of young people – their interests and stories – led to him writing a series about a teenage skateboarder called Alex Jackson. Pat likes to start the day with a surf and end it walking along the beach with his wife and son. He also enjoys the occasional game of tennis. Pat now writes full time and lives on the Sunshine Coast.
