Chris Dixon is the author of Ghost Wave, The Discovery of Cortes Bank and the Biggest Wave on Earth. In 2021, Chronicle Books released his second work, The Ocean, The Ultimate Handbook of Nautical Knowledge. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Outside, Garden & Gun, and Power & Motoryacht, where he works as a senior editor. Dixon lives, surfs, fishes and boats with his family in Charleston, South Carolina. He will never ride waves approaching the size of those found at the Cortes Bank. And he’s just fine with that.
