SURFING MAGAZINE VOLUME 1, NO. 6 (AUGUST 1964)

Early bodysurfing and bellyboarding (sorry boogie boarders...that's what it was called back then!) articles and the Northern California Surfing Championships held at Steamer Lane in April 1964 . Early boat-wake surfing, Queensland surf, and Ala Moana color pictorial round out the content. Classic ad for surf albums by Dick Dale and the Beach Boys on page 51. This one is in Betty-minus condition, or about 75 percent of mint. Front cover has crease where it was folded lengthwise. Spine is near-perfect, with no pulling at staples. Very few dinks and minimal scuffing. This one is in amazingly good condition considering its age. We have a second copy of this issue in comparable condition. Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board.
