We at Coastal Surf Supplies are excited to have in stock The Surfer's Journal volume 30.1! For those not familiar with The Surfer’s Journal, the publication provides an in-depth perspective on surf travel, surfboard design, write ups and interviews on many of the most influential surfers as well as shapers of past and present. The art and photography that covers each page from front to back of each volume is, in our opinion, second to none and always inspiring.
The following is a preview of volume 30.1. Once you dive into this volume, as well as any back issues, you will have a difficult time putting it down.
For the first issue in our 30th year of print, we lead off with an image as pure and irreproachable as the pursuit itself.
The inner workings of TSJ 30.1 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 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 and the intimate illustrations of artist AJ Dungo present disparate but equally personal representations of the life.
