This stunning nonfiction picture book tells the inspiring story of Sarah Gerhardt, one of the first female big-wave surfers.

Have you ever seen a big wave? One that's 20, 30, 40, even 50 feet tall? Here's a better question: would you ever surf a big wave? Sarah Gerhardt did—and this is her story.

Full of thrills and scientific facts, Sarah and the Big Wave is about the first woman to surf Mavericks, a break known as "Mount Everest meets Niagara Falls." This tale of adventure and indomitable spirit will appeal to fans of Counting on Katherine and The Shark Lady.
