Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher

In 1996, Allan Weisbecker sold his home and his possessions, loaded his dog and surfboards into his truck, and set off in search of his long-time surfing companion, Patrick, who had vanished into the depths of Central America. In this rollicking memoir of his quest from Mexico to Costa Rica to unravel the circumstances of Patrick's disappearance, Weisbecker intimately describes the people he befriended, the bandits he evaded, the waves he caught and lost en route to finding his friend.

Blurbs:
  • "In Search of Captain Zero is a dead-on and beautifully evocative portrait of a lifestyle like no other on earth. I found myself in a constant grin and nod mode, as Weisbecker traveled the strange, wave rich road down the coast of his life as an all-around waterman and totally likeable scoundrel. I couldn't put this one down." Bruce Bown director Endless Summer
  • "A dangerous tale, filled with humor, insight, lawlessness, heartbreak, and some wicked cool waves." Chicago Tribune
  • " Images of the counterculture swashbuckler risking life and limb for the perfect wave have almost become a stereotype, but rarely have they been captured with the romance and eloquent detail found in In Search of Captain Zero." Surfer
  • "A subtly affecting tale of friendship and duty. [It] deserves a spot on the microbus dashboard as a hell of a cautionary tale about finding paradise and smoking it away." Outside
