Amid the madness that is the U.S. Open after hours, dozens of the world’s best female surfers gathered at 25 Degrees in Huntington Beach for the launch of the debut issue of SURFER’s all-girls mag, SALTED. After surprising cover girl LeeAnn Curren, magazines, blueberry mojitos, and the dancefloor were thoroughly enjoyed. ‘Twas a great success. The magazine will be on newsstands next week. Keep an eye out for it your local bookstore or surf shop. The digital version of SALTED is also available–just search for SURFER in the Apple Newsstand to download.
