Big Issue Release Party

In honor of the release of the year's biggest issue, SURFER staff, friends, and fans invaded the dimly lit sushi hotspot Zenbu in Cardiff to celebrate. For us staffers, The Big Issue is not only the most unique and revered issue of the year, but also the most work. But what better way to blow of the steam from the long hours spent putting together this oversized edition than to throw a party, drink some sake, and revel with friends. If you weren’t able to make it to the party, you can still pick up a copy on newsstands until the end of July.
