Issue 27.6 On the cover: Human corona—Mikey Wright at Off The Wall. Features inside the book shed light on a rivermouth sandbank in equatorial Africa, the swamps and inlets of Florida, and a foundational headland on the East Coast of Australia. The pitfalls of modern surf forecasting, the mind-space of a slab-hunting fireman, and the irreverent outputs of artist Paul McNeil mark other points of conference.
Issue 27.3 On the cover: Matahi Drollet navigates the hydro prism at Teahupoo. Pinpoints inside the mag drift from the frozen river mouths of Iceland (with our friend Elli Thor Magnusson) to a sultry pier in India. White sharks in Gansbaai, the oldest continuously inhabited structure in California, and the lifecycle of surfing as a competitive endeavor are each held to the light for further revelations.
Issue 27.1 Features inside the flap rove from an urban surf-scape in the Middle East to an examination of artificial waves—and their existential impacts. A Hawaiian bodysurf Mecca, an archipelago in the South Pacific, two visual/spatial artists, and a horde of full-bleed surf imagery offer waypoints of interest.
Issue 26.6 Inside the book, further odysseys follow a team of daredevils to the glacial outfalls of Alaska, a crew of Indonesian boat-in pioneers through the revelation of Desert Point, and director Bruce Brown’s still-camera inside the most impactful surf movie ever assembled. Technical analysis of the asymmetrical surfboard, and a deep batch of imagery from the front-lines of the professional surf arena, add motion and ballast.
Issue 25.3 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 24.3 Includes an article with us as the subject, penned by Daniel Crockett. SOLD OUT - contact us to get back orders.
