SURFER MAGAZINE VOLUME 15, NO. 1 (1974)

"Santosha isn't really a particular place, it's a word that has a meaning...it's a state of mind, actually, a state of being, of living...to me it seems a forgotten state of happiness and peace." In other words, it doesn't matter where it is...perfection is where you find it. Today we know this feature was shot at Tamarin Bay, but according to the Surfer's Journal, this issue had many surfers buying plane tickets to their own Nirvana. Elsewhere, "Vlandia" offers up some very hollow Velzyland barrels. Plus Hawaii and California images, "Inside Echos" by George Greenough, and some lime green barrels from Pensacola, Florida. Finally, "Dick Brewer on Cloud Breaks" and a Woody Woodworth photo feature on "rafting," or "mat surfing." This magazine is a Betty, about 80 percent of mint. Light cover and spine wear. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts. Subscription card is intact. We have two other copies of this issue in Betty-minus condition, about 70 to 75 percent of mint. Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board. Click Here for a closer look.
