‘First We Surf, Then We Eat’ at Laguna Beach Books

10.10.18

Laguna Beach Books welcomes local author Jim Kempton on Sunday, October 14 at 4 to 6 p.m., to talk about his new book, First We Surf, Then We Eat.

Jim Kempton has spent his life traveling and surfing the world, along the way learning to cook the world's best beach-loving dishes. Now he's sharing his vividly colorful, richly flavorful, and vibrantly healthful collection of more than 90 recipes, along with stories of the best waves, markets, restaurants, adventures, and misadventures that he's experienced, from Australia to Hawaii, the Basque Country to Indonesia, California to Mexico. First We Surf, Then We Eat features a foreword by The Surfer's Journal publisher Steve Pezman, a preface by famed surfer/chef Raphael Lunetta, and photography by Bill Schildge, Jeff Divine, Tom Servais, and Art Brewer.

Kempton has been the editor and publisher of Surfer magazine; the director of Quiksilver’s Crossing Project, a boat that searched the world for the best surf breaks; the director of media for Billabong; and the owner of the former Margarita’s Village, an award-winning regional Mexican restaurant in San Clemente. Kempton has traveled to over 30 countries, surfing and collecting recipes. The San Clemente resident is currently president of the California Surf Museum, as well as a surf-industry consultant to the store.
