A volume rich with powerful images, dedicated to the most breathtaking, the most intoxicating aspects of the sea, to the incredible violence
unleashed during tempests, and to the extraordinary force and individual waves, not without their own disquieting beauty. The sea is life, pure energy, expressing itself in many different ways, and evoking various states of mind. In these pages, the sea is also revealed as a challenge and comparison between man and nature: on thje crests of waves being ridden by hardy surfers, who venture onto the peaks of waves reaching up to the 17 feet (5m.) in height, with their awesome power.
