My family frequently visits the beach and I have seen my kids countless times staring out at the surfers catching waves in awe.  Ages 6, 4, and 3 surfing is still a dream for them, but I would love for it to become a reality one day.

This book is a fun story of environmental activism that is especially relevant to the world today.  

The total costs of printing 4,000 copies of this book were $13,000.

    The Surfing Lesson Update 4

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

    Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh


    We are excited to announce that people are discovering the book at the LA county libraries and they are constantly checked out. We have been receiving messages on social media from people who discover the book organically and post about it tagging us.  

    We hope to be able to continue to get the book out to public spaces like Libraries, classrooms, and pediatrician offices.

    Book readings

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

    Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!


    We are excited to announce that we donated 88 copies of The Surfing Lesson to LA County public libraries and can now track when the books are being checked out.  We are pleased to inform that over half of the books have been consistently checked out over the last few weeks and that Library visitors are showing great interest in the book.  

    We have also been doing book readings with many groups including Paramount Pictures and a few Punjabi Schools.  

    We are hoping to continue to inspire future Sikh authors and to get these books out to the public so they can learn and be exposed to Sikhi at a very young age.
