The Surfers Journal - 29.3
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. SJ delve into topics that get little attention elsewhere, covering travel adventures, surfboard design, profiles of surfing’s most colourful subjects, and the choicest surf photography in every issue.
Between the flaps, TSJ 29.3 spins its compass from dodging landmines in the Falklands, to an unassisted paddle journey from Alaska to Cabo, and to the river-wave surf scene springing up in Boise, Idaho. Shaper Donald Brink’s experimentations in surfboard sonics and Martin Machado’s oceanic etchings provide doses of written and visual portraiture, while the portfolio of Sarah Lee, Derek Dunfee’s intimate look at the modern big-wave stage, and Brad Barrett’s 1960s retrospective offer photographic page studies.
