THE SURFERS JOURNAL 30.1
The Surfer's Journal kicks off our 30th year in print with a page-one image as pure and irreproachable as the pursuit itself.
The inner workings of the new issue are framed by culture checks: Tracing the early 1960s surf-exploitation film genre, the underappreciated role sanders play in the surfboard-building process, and the recounting of the fantasy and realities of finding a surfing Eden by the always worth-reading Bryan Di Salvatore. Chart-plot to pointbreaks in West Africa, rain-dodge in the Pacific Northwest, and take stock of Portugal’s ascension as a major surf destination. The high-action water photography of Laserwolf (@laserwolf.laserwolf) and the intimate illustrations of artist AJ Dungo (@agedungs) present disparate but equally personal representations of the life.
