THE SURFERS JOURNAL 32.3
On the Cover: For Frederick Wardy, surfboard building was art and art was an extension of craftsmanship. Prime sample, 1965. Photo courtesy of Frederick Wardy. On the back: Canyon-effect crosshatching at Nazaré. Photo by Hélio António (@helio_antonio).
Features in TSJ 32.3 track Wardy’s transition from shaper to fine artist, the bountiful score of Harrison Roach (@harrisonsan), Jai Glindeman (@jaiglindeman), Mitch Crews (@mitchcrews), and Ryan Callinan (@ryancallinan), and the impetus of California slab hunter Chad Kaimanu Jackson (@hempsurfboards). We also tap into the wisdom of 93-year-old surfer Billy Meng and hop continents with enthusiastic surf progeny Tosh Tudor (@toshtudor). Other stops include the sea smoke-filled frames of New England-based shooter Brian Nevins (@nevinsphoto), Greg Nagel’s (@gregnagelphoto) traffic-snarling work, and author Beau Flemister’s (@beauflemister) search for the caretakers of aloha in modern-day Waikiki.
