Editor's Viewpoint: Wave goodbye to your fears with surfer's innovative book
If anyone knows about fear it is Portrush surfer Al Mennie. Riding huge waves around the world demands courage as there is nothing as unpredictable as nature. He admits he is not some reckless adrenalin junkie and has had to fight his fears and anxieties to reach the heights of his sport.
Now he wants to share his experiences in a new book which will educate readers on ways that they can adapt his methods of fighting fear to control their own negative emotions. Anxiety and depression is a huge problem in the modern world and Al has used his techniques in his everyday life as well as in mountainous seas. Hopefully he will lead others into calmer waters.
