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!
The cover of the Vol. 31 no. 3 issue features John John Florence at Rockpile, brushing up against what Hunter S. Thompson called “The Edge,” conjuring an ocean-based version of fanging it on a Vincent Black Shadow. Pistons and gears inside the issue include the arc of Dane Kealoha, Indonesian isolation amid a pandemic, the physics of tube riding with Mike Stewart, and toolbox analysis with master shapers.
