Issue 24.3 includes an article with us as the subject, penned by Daniel Crockett.
Issue 25.2 manages to cover all bases and offers something for everyone, from pivotal moments at the 1968 world championships through to the graceful, modern, "big guy" surfing of Jay Davies, via surfing South African street kids, the waves of Russia's remote far west, Peter Townend and the "retrogressive" Californian imagery of Tatsuo Takei.
Issue 25.3 On the cover: Waveform, Oaxaca, Mexico. Inside pages range from the diamond- and surf-rich coastlines of Africa to an atoll in the Indian Ocean. Tintypes from photographer Bernard Testemale, time-bending imagery from Jay Mark Johnson, and the back-alley noir and shorefront vibrancy of Town lend lights and darks.

Issue 26.5 On the cover: Tyler Thornsley, traversing the thin line between disaster and delight at Wedge. Features inside the book chart the mirrored perfection of twin African points, dissect the foundational surfing of Oxnard’s Russ Short, and enjoin a string of clip hunts across Iceland, Mexico, and the Maldives with the likes of Steph Gilmore and Ryan Burch. Digital disruptions on the Victorian Coast of Oz, high-resolution slide film on Oahu’s North Shore, and the “death of print” in the surf media are variously discussed.
