About the Mag

Known as "the bible of the sport," SURFER Magazine has been the foremost authority on surf culture since its founding in 1960. Every issue is packed with award-winning photography, provocative interviews, and travel features to the world's most exotic surf locales.

In This Issue


    Josh Mulcoy and his father, Bill—a man who broke the law, evaded the cops, and then won a court battle to uphold his right to surf the best sand point in Santa Cruz—join Joe Curren and Adam Replogle in search of a new wave to satisfy their collective obsession.


    At 20 years old, Darryl “Flea” Virostko made $12,000 a month as a big wave surfer. Nearly two decades and a harrowing career later, it all seemed to vanish through a glass pipe. Now, he’s got a plan to set things right that just might save him and a lot of people he doesn’t even know yet.


    Over 100 images from one of the best North Shore seasons in decades. Okay, we’ll be honest—you’ll only find a portion of those vivid and epic Hawaiian moments in the upcoming spreads. But, we’ve linked them to our most extensive online galleries to date, filled with dozens more for your viewing pleasure.
