Barefoot: A Surfer’s View of the Universe

Barefoot: A Surfer’s View of the Universe is a dazzling memoir of the author’s early life, narrated with a sense of adventure and refreshing humility. Pacholyk begins tracing his life through early memories of growing up on the farm in New York state and how his taste for personal development and ambition shaped his growing interests and career choices later in life. The story is centered around the author’s love of surfing and the joy he experiences with the lessons learned from the ocean and this exciting sport.

This extraordinary memoir plays against the scenic backdrop of American cityscapes and beaches, ranging from New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. Pacholyk further broadens his horizons by traveling to Asia and beyond. I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s enthusiasm for travel, surfing, and living life to the fullest.

The author’s story includes a passionate pursuit of a career in dance and many excursions to some of the best surfing locations in the world. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of America’s big cities, with a colorfully descriptive journey through Venice through the fresh eyes of a sixteen-year-old and the frenetic energy of New York City as Andrew struggles to establish a career path as a dancer.

What I enjoyed most about this book is how the author is comfortable with his vulnerabilities and doesn’t shy away from discussing his insecurities growing up. He reminisces about friendships through his surfing adventures and mentors who contributed to the quality of his experiences. Pacholyk writes a beautiful memoir interspersed with nuggets of wisdom and valuable lessons that shaped how he navigated through life. When you read Pacholyk’s exciting and enlightening memoir, you’ll feel inspired by the author’s unbridled passion for a life of energy and pushing one’s limits. I recommend Barefoot: A Surfer’s View of the Universe by Andrew Pacholyk for its impeccable, genuine narration and the author’s advice to take a chance and follow your heart.
