A Surfing Classic of Monster Waves
A Melville-style conquest of the Biggest Wave in the World, the story of the men who captured it—and those who were destroyed. Sherlock Holmes meets Adventure Tale.
Cortes Bank, the fabled land off the North Pacific, has the special elements to make the largest waves in the world. Dixon explains in depth why it's possible, and what it takes to surf it. Fascinating, frightening, thrilling.

Would you consider the audio edition of Ghost Wave to be better than the print version?
Yes! Hearing it in the authors voice and tone really add to the experience!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost Wave?
I enjoyed the maritime history of the bank, but the whole story is compelling and builds to a satisfying end.
