Jaimal Yogis is an outdoorsman, award-winning writer, and frequent teacher and speaker. He is the author of Saltwater Buddha, a humorous coming-of-age memoir about running away to Hawaii at sixteen to surf, nearly becoming a Zen monk, and eventually winding up at Columbia Journalism School. Saltwater Buddha was turned into a feature documentary film. Jaimal is also the author of The Fear Project and the forthcoming All Our Waves Are Water.
Jaimal’s writing has also appeared in The Washington Post, AFAR magazine, The Chicago Tribune, Men’s Health, ESPN magazine, The Surfers Journal, The Daily Beast, and many others. His journalism has won a Maggie Award for Best Feature, and The Commonwealth Club of California named him “The New Face of San Francisco Media” for his popular writing in San Francisco Magazine. His screenplay, City of Dragons, is currently being adapted as a novel, and was a finalist at the Asian American Film Festival in Manhattan.
One of Jaimal’s stories for AFAR magazine, about the first female, Muslim surf star in Bangladesh, inspired the documentary The Most Fearless, which Jaimal is co-producing with award-winning director, Heather Kessinger.
