At sixteen, Jaimal Yogis ran way on a spiritual journey of a magnitude few of us even dream of, to learn to ride the waves of the world's oceans, and the bigger surf within his own mind. As Jaimal gains hard-won spiritual lessons with a teenager's eagerness and a surfer's passion, we cannot help but see our own spiritual life with fresh, beginner's eyes. His journey started in nothingness —at least in a material sense. But it ends in deep riches of spiritual insight, human warmth and humor.

Jaimal Yogis is an award-winning journalist and photographer who spends a good deal of his spare time surfing and a Master's in Journalism from Columbia University in New York City. He has written for numerous publications, and recently finished his first book, a memoir called Saltwater Buddha. He lives on San Francisco's Ocean Beach with his girlfriend Siri.
