In This Issue
SURFER PROFILE: BRUCE IRONS
Enigmatic, unpredictable, and possibly the most talented surfer of his generation, Bruce Irons is at a crossroads. No longer a Dream Tour warrior or the next big thing, we dispatched Lewis Samuels to Kauai to find what his next act is, or if he even has one.
SURFER’s staff photographers went to the Gold Coast and brought back some gems. A photo gallery from shortboarding’s paradise.
If surfing was a Buick, youth would be the gasoline. This issue we’ve profiled eight kids who we see doing big things. Call ’em “groms” if you will…we think of them as surfing’s “future heroes.”
