Surfing Life is a non-fiction recount of the author's childhood, growing up close to the beach in Northern NSW. Mark shares his fond memories of surfing with his friends as well as the time he spent living off the land by fishing, hunting and finding bush tucker. His story also explains the importance of family, community, place and culture, both from his original Wiradjuri Nation, and his more recent years as a visitor in the Bundjalung Nation.

Mark Tirris is a proud descendant of the Wiradjuri Peoples of South West NSW and has always been active in his local Aboriginal community in Northern NSW. He successfully completed a Master's degree in Indigenous Studies (Wellbeing) through Southern Cross University. His professional experience includes five years working in several Aboriginal organisations and managing his own Indigenous consultancy business.
