For Fiona Capp, surfing had always been more than physical. It was a way of bringing together the life of the body and the life of the mind. But time took her in a different direction and she lost touch with the ocean. Approaching forty, she decided it was time to confront her fears and follow her dream of returning to the waves. So begins a personal journey that takes her from the wild, cold waters of Victoria, north to the tropics and then to Europe. As well as recovering a dormant part of herself, Capp discovers the spiritual hold the ocean has on her as an Australian, and as a human being.That Oceanic Feeling is about why we feel compelled to push ourselves out of our safety zones and venture into unknown waters.
