Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer's Journal - Volumes 10 - Present
Lineup cover shots like this are what separates the Journal from the mainstream consumer surf mags. Here Carlos Cabrero takes a choice line at Gas Chambers in Puerto Rico.
Content includes "Fuzzy Returns to Rincon" by Andrew Kidman, an outstanding Puerto Rico photo feature by Steve Fitzpatrick, and a "Future Primitive," Jalian Johnston. Then Rob Gilley offers a black-and-white portfolio titled "Grey Matters," while great white shark researcher/surfer Adam Brown "mindsurfs" the Farallones rather than risk certain attack in "Over the Deep." Also includes a Pat Tobin gallery, "Into the Arctic Circle" by Yassine Ouhilal, and "Sweet Sixteen: A Glimpse of California in the pivotal year of 1947." Finally, in "Archipelago Love," Dustin Humphrey brings home the bacon with some sweet shots of a year in Indonesia, which arguably holds the best surfing waves in the world.
Direct from the publisher, these mint back issues are immediately sealed in a clear archival-quality plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board. Virtually untouched by human hands, they are perfect for the discriminating collector.
