Issue 24.3 includes an article with us as the subject, penned by Daniel Crockett.
Issue 25.2 manages to cover all bases and offers something for everyone, from pivotal moments at the 1968 world championships through to the graceful, modern, "big guy" surfing of Jay Davies, via surfing South African street kids, the waves of Russia's remote far west, Peter Townend and the "retrogressive" Californian imagery of Tatsuo Takei.
Issue 25.3 On the cover: Waveform, Oaxaca, Mexico. Inside pages range from the diamond- and surf-rich coastlines of Africa to an atoll in the Indian Ocean. Tintypes from photographer Bernard Testemale, time-bending imagery from Jay Mark Johnson, and the back-alley noir and shorefront vibrancy of Town lend lights and darks.

Issue 26.4 On the cover: “Water is the New Black,” 18x24-inch screen print by Shepard Fairey. Renderings inside the book frame the combat and surf photography of photojournalist Nic Bothma, sketch in the dimensions of Skip Frye’s personal quiver, and go horseback on an expedition through the wilds of Chile. Long reads by Kimball Taylor (on the current state of bodyboarding) and Jamie Brisick (with a haunting essay on love, death, and Brazilian shore-pound) add depth and shading.
