Plot: What's the story about?

The story centers on Norman Ollestad's love/hate relationship with his charismatic father, who thrust him into extreme sports pursuits at age 3, and pressed him to excel in the world of surfing and competitive skiing which immersed them in the Southern California surf culture of the 1970s. Ollestad became his father's greatest creation, a fearless surfer and ski champion, and that fearlessness prompted him to not give up even after he saw his idol killed in the crash that left him alone in a blizzard in the San Gabriel Mountains.
