Surfer Dude:
The Legendary Stallion of Chincoteague
Lois Szymanski, Illustrated by Linda Kantjas
• A legendary stallion leaves his mark on the wild Chincoteague pony herds of Assateague Island
• Born with unique coloring and blue eyes, Surfer Dude had fans all over the US
• A story of love and the circle of life
Destined for fame, Surfer Dude is known to anyone who looked for this colt when crossing the bridge
to Assateague Island entering the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. The story of this beloved wild
stallion, who cared for his herd of mares over a lifetime on Chincoteague Island, is beautifully illustrated in
vivid detail, from his distinctive blue eye to his white star and stripe, silver mane and tail, and chocolatey
chestnut coat. His passing at the ripe age of twenty-three in the spring of 2015 touched people from across
the United States and beyond. But the spirit of his gentle nature and the way he loved his foals lives on. His
spirit lingers in breezes that ruffle the island grasses and in the sunbeams that warm the island ponies, and
is celebrated in this story of love and the circle of life.
Lois Szymanski
has authored over 25 books, many on the wild Chincoteague ponies. She lives in
Westminster, Maryland, with her husband, Dan, and their Shetland sheepdog, Ryley. In 1995, her family
purchased a foal at the Pony Penning auction.
