On the cover: Nathan Fletcher takes a no-frills, only-pop-matters approach above the horizon line at Pipeline’s end.
Inside, you’ll explore the surprising wave resources of an overlooked Caribbean island, chase right-hand points up the East Coast of South Africa, and study once-thought-lost photographs of Sydney’s burgeoning 1960s surf scene. Trace the surfing germ of a French playboy and socialite, and be schooled on the contributions of a contemporary big-wave pioneer. And for seeking wider-breadth of the topic, check the seascape paintings of a nineteenth-century Swede, and hang in the yard with a modern California surf-boat builder. It’s a range found nowhere else in surfing.
