THE SURFERS JOURNAL 30.3
Page One: Kainehe Hunt (@kainehe_hunt) stretches out with room to spare amid the backwash chaos on an otherwise picture-postcard afternoon in Hawaii. Page 132: Hammerhead Gravage, center, holds court from the back of the late 1930s Ford Panel delivery van in which he lived, San Onofre, July 1950.
In between the bookends is an end-to-end trip in era and avenue and geography: The original surf-tracks laid at G-Land by smugglers in the early 1970s. The San Clemente showdown between then-sitting President Tricky Dicky Nixon and Surfer-founder John Severson. Shane Beschen’s lasting-impact on world tour performance in the 90s. Santa Barbara-based artist DJ Javier’s street-culture-infused works. The commitments of modern surf exploration set in the Baltic Sea. Contemporary high-action photography from the wilds of Western Australia fast-tracked to our pages.
