Surfer magazine has captured and defined surf culture in every way: the sport's best photography, most respected journalists, greatest tales, epic surf discoveries, colourful characters, and cultural icons. Marking "Surfer" magazine's 50th anniversary, this book examines each of these spheres of influence - through archival journalism and photos, as well as original text and previously unpublished photographs - to provide a complete perspective of the sport's most vital facets.
