Summary
Richie 'Vas' Vaculik grew up in the tough streets of Maroubra where surfing, fighting and drinking were the way of life for teenagers, and where joining the notorious Bra Boys was the pinnacle of ambition. Richie developed into one of Australia's most fearless big wave surfers, a figher so tough he now competes in the UFC, and of course a member of the Bra Boys. Richie always pushes to the limits, and sometimes beyond. A vicious brawl in a Queensland pub saw him charged with Grievous Bodily Harm and the prospect of a lengthy prison sentence. It was a wake up call that he had to change his life or end up either killing himself, killing someone else or in gaol. He turned his focus to the discipline of MMA and is now one of Australia's top UFC fighters. This is his gritty, uncompromising memoir about growing up in the 'Bra, the gang, and about living life on the edge of an adrenaline charge -- whether towing into fifteen metre waves at Shipstern Bluff, going toe to toe in brutal gang fights or entering the UFC cage
