The Westsiders

The Westsiders, by Joshua Leonard Pomer (Pomegranate): An eye-opening mixture of surfing innovation and gritty localism documents the rise and fall of The Westsiders surf gang through the eyes of three best friends from the original “Surf City,” Santa Cruz, California. Best friends, Daryl “Flea” Virostko, Shawn “Barney” Barron and Jason “Ratboy” Collins bond via common tragedy and their love of surfing. They help each other through shattered homes, drug addiction, psychological issues and hard-core localism to achieve their dream of becoming professional surfers before the age of 24.
