Product Details


“A fantastic read – beautifully written and brimming with wisdom, wildness and stories that enlighten and inspire … a book for these times from a soulful surfer, scholar, and artist who offers us a compelling and hopeful vision for how things can be.”Ruairí McKiernan, bestselling author of Hitching for Hope

“Easkey Britton’s story is one of resilience, strength and the nourishing power of the sea … a moving tale of one woman’s exploration of her own self and her beloved blue sea” - 

“Easkey Britton has transferred the courage and dedication of a life spent surfing the world’s wildest waves onto the written page to tell a fascinating story that is both an intensely personal reflection and a celebration of the sea.” - Keith Duggan, award-winning journalist and bestselling author of books including Cliffs of Insanity

“Reading this truly marvellous book made me feel vulnerable, uplifted and … will leave an indelible mark on the memory.” - Sir Tim Smit, Co-Founder of the Eden Project

“This beautiful book is much more than a celebration of place. It is a powerful story of an incredible woman at the frontline of surfing. … Easkey’s blue heritage runs deep through her bloodline, and she will draw us all closer – both inside our bodies and the bigger body of the world – to water as we flow through these pages.” - Sam Bleakley, surfer, filmmaker and author of Mindful Thoughts for Surfers: Turning in to the Tides

“This book is a love story of the exhilarating relationship between a deeply sensitive, courageous woman and the ocean … With such an intimate personal account it also illustrates how each person can have their own rich and fulfilling relationship with the natural world.” - Michael Depledge CBE FRCP, Emeritus Professor of Environment and Human Health

“Easkey Britton’s story is uniquely, authentically, wholly, powerfully, and untouchably her own. She tells us how to bring water – in all its forms – into our own lives as mother, muse, coach, confidant, healer, lover, sparing-partner, and best friend. I hope everyone listens.” - Dr Wallace J Nichols, author of Blue Mind

“Saltwater in the Blood is a compelling and moving read about the thrill, wonder and danger of surfing, and how Easkey’s relationship to the sea and surf has awoken in her a responsibility to life itself.” - Alexandra Pope. co-author of Wild Power: discover the magic of the menstrual cycle and awaken the feminine path to power

“Her journey as a surfer and as woman are an urgent reminder of the spiritual power of our ocean as a source of inspiration, humility, and connection that we all need in this moment of human and planetary crisis.” - Persis Karim, poet, editor and Professor at San Francisco State University

“We learn of a woman’s deep sensations from Easkey’s book. She is not coy. She says it how she feels, in water and on paper and in this world.” - Pauline Bewick, Irish artist and author

“In Saltwater in the Blood, Easkey invites us into her intimate relationship with the sea, and shows us how hearing its calls has given her new eyes, profound connections, and a fierce courage to release the wild woman soul that yearns to come out of hiding.” - Captain Liz Clark, author of Swell
