"Surfing with Snakes & Dragons sublimely captures the allure and essence of surfing. Roger J. Couture portrays a counterweight to the stresses life imposes on us all in his romance of surfing Southern California waves."

—  Ben Marcus, former editor at SURFER magazine and author of twenty books, including The Surfboard: Art, Style, Stoke.

"Both tragic and triumphant in all the right places. A beautifully written story about the desperately flawed. Couture's words mesmerize and then marinate; your heart will never be the same. Absolutely spellbinding."

—  Mike Bednarsky, former managing editor of Skin&Ink and Rebel Ink magazines

"From tattoo parlors to car racetracks to surfers' paradises, Roger J. Couture's stories have a unique voice that takes you to places you may have never been. It's a great ride and a great read."

—  Elaine Bernstein Partnow, author of The Quotable Woman: The First 5,000 Years and star of the movie Slipaway
