Abstract

This chapter illustrates a modest attempt at what might loosely be called a sensory (auto)ethnography that may assist in attunement to thalassography. Sarah Pink describes a sensory autoethnography as 'a reflexive and experiential process through which academic and applied understanding, knowing and knowledge are produced'. The chapter focuses on how an exploration of one's sensory experience, perception, sociality, knowing, knowledge, practice and culture may be informed by sensory autoethnography. Yet sensory accounts of human experiences are typically embedded in the more-than-human terrestrial spacetimes. In the case of the surfed wave, in the case of watery worlds, one need more sophisticated methods of creating sensory accounts of fluid spaces, contemplating how the bodies move through and sense these spaces. Just as the 'surf' 'the surfed wave' and 'the surf session' are co-constructed. Gaining insight from individuals' experiences of the place of the surfed wave also emphasizes the importance of corporeal engagement with the sea.
