Michael Peterson ruled the surf scene throughout the early to mid-1970s with his savage, groundbreaking surfing. An undiagnosed schizophrenic, Michael couldn’t handle the fame his surfing powers attracted, and he retreated into a world of hard drugs and fast cars. He eventually hit rock bottom after a police chase, which took 25 cars to stop him. It’s an intoxicating and addictive tale for anyone who has ever felt like a fish out of water.
