AFTERNOON INTERVIEW: JAMIE BRISICK

AFTERNOON INTERVIEW: JAMIE BRISICK


Episode 028: Author of Becoming Westerly talks to us about writing the first book on a transgender surfer

The topic is very popular right now. You can’t deny that. And while other stories lead the headlines across America and the world, surfing has it’s own version of the tale unfolding: the story of Becoming Westerly — a book chronicling the transformation of former professional surfer Peter Drouyn into a woman.

The story caught Jamie Brisick’s eye years ago, and it’s now been documented in the honest and compelling book Becoming Westerly. 

We caught up with Jamie recently to delve a bit deeper into the story and his involvement. Watch above.

And be sure to read the book, available here. It truly is a fascinating tale written by a fantastic writer.
