THE SURFERS JOURNAL 32.5
On the cover of our new issue: Maritime idyll in French Polynesia. “Well, it’s all the same, the surfing and the sailing,” said Phil Edwards to TSJ co-founder Steve Pezman in 1973. “They’re all nature’s free ride.” Photo by Kirvan Baldassari (@kirvanb).

In this issue, we go berth to berth with John John Florence (@john_john_florence), Trevor Gordon, Torren Martyn (@torrenmartyn), Aiyana Powell (@a.i.yan.a), and Austin Cooper (@rhinorudder) in four separate surfing/sailing voyages. Gerry Lopez (@gerrylopezsurfboards), Renny Yater, Grubby Clark, and Walter Hoffman roost through Baja in the dirty ’70s. Artist Jacob Pedrana (@jakeypedro) invites us to his mixed-media rodeo. Seven-time world champion Layne Beachley (@laynebeachley) imparts wisdom. New York nomad Andrew Blauschild (@blauschild) shows us Long Island through his lens. Other waypoints include literary scholar Thomas Farber’s riff on beach culture and an assemblage of on-wave stimuli and peripherals from the best shooters in the game.
