About the publication: As a reader-supported surf publication, The Surfer’s Journal is a truly unique periodical. It’s an independent take on the surfing experience with limited advertising, making each 132-page issue almost entirely editorial. We delve into topics that get little attention elsewhere, covering travel adventures, surfboard design, profiles of surfing’s most colorful subjects, and the choicest surf photography in every issue. Coupled with the premium construction, The Surfer’s Journal is a product that is peerless in its quality and content.*via The Surfer’s Journal
About the issue: On the cover: David Nuuhiwa shows the 22nd Street locals some barrel-strength beachboy style. 1964, Hermosa Beach. Photographer LeRoy Grannis’ back-of-print note reveals it was a Friday.
From the symbolic figures to the modern punters, the culture pillars to the remote outposts, the hero shots to the candid representations, TSJ 31.1 offers a perspective found nowhere else in surfing.*via The Surfer’s Journal
Why it’s worth your time: It’s simple. The quality here is impeccable–and I mean from the inside out. This is the type of magazine you’ll be proud to hold on to and one day, 30 years from now, still show off. An essential for a glimpse into the heart of surfing.
