The Surfers Journal 32.3
As a reader-supported surf publication, The Surfer’s Journal is a truly unique periodical. It’s an independent take on the surfing experience with limited advertising, making each 132-page issue almost entirely editorial. They delve into topics that get little attention elsewhere, covering travel adventures, surfboard design, profiles of surfing’s most colorful subjects, and the choicest surf photography in every issue. Coupled with the premium construction, The Surfer’s Journal is a product that is peerless in its quality and content. It makes a great gift for the surfer in your life. We like it and we don't even surf!
On the June/July '23 issue:
Cover: Frederick Wardy. For Frederick Wardy, surfboard building was art and art was an extension of craftsmanship. Beyond the flaps, we track Wardy’s transition from shaper to fine artist, the bountiful score of a four-deep Aussie crew, and the impetus of a Central Californian slab hunter and land steward.
We also tap into the wisdom of a 93-year-old surfer and hop continents with an enthusiastic surf progeny.
Other stops along the way include the sea smoke-filled frames of a New England-based shooter, traffic-snarling art, and one writer’s search for the caretakers of aloha in modern-day Waikiki.
